Dear community members:
We are writing to follow up on the notice you received that GHDonline.org will become a static site the week of December 10. It has been a great honor to serve as your moderators. After more than ten years of our global health nursing & midwifery site, 4535 members, 2474 organizations represented, 1469 resources shared, 1240 discussions posted and 170 countries participating, our goal now is to support the transition of this wonderful community. We're sharing below a list of next steps we recommend you take in preparation for GHDonline's transition to a static site:
1. Review your member profile and posts: After December 10, member profiles and community content will remain viewable online but will no longer be editable. If you wish to contribute new posts, edit your existing posts, or make changes to your member profile, you will need to do so before December 10.
2. If you are interested in transitioning to an informal Google listserv, please go to: https://groups.google.com/d/forum/global-health-nursing--midwifery
3. Join conversations with other global health colleagues: Below is a list of other global health platforms and networks we encourage you to check out or consider joining.
We are so grateful to you for enabling our community to thrive, and for sharing your time and expertise to build a digital library of tried-and-true knowledge in global health delivery. It has been a true pleasure to collaborate with and learn from one another. We are hopeful that we can stay connected and look forward to the conversations ahead.
Maggie Sullivan, on behalf of our Community Moderators
