GHDonline becoming a static sight starting December 10, 2108

By Joaquin Blaya, PhD Moderator | 15 Nov, 2018

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 wonderful to serve as moderators for this community, and our
goal now is to support the transition of its members.

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

2. Join conversations with other global health colleagues: Below is a list
of other global health platforms and networks that have an emphasis on
health IT, 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. We are hopeful that we
can stay connected and look forward to the conversations ahead.

With gratitude,

Naomi, Terry, and Joaquin
