You can also contact the Co-Editor Sushma Joshi at firstname.lastname@example.org or Co-Editor Tal Halpern at email@example.com . The Internet is a rapidly emerging medium, both locally and worldwide. It is a relatively cheap and easy way to disseminate large volumes of information. Although larger organizations and corporate lobbies have begun to take advantage of the medium to disseminate their information and opinions, many women’s groups and other activists in the South have yet to explore the potential of the medium. This initiative is an effort to begin this exploration.This project is part of the Global Reproductive Health Forum @ the Harvard School of Public Health http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/Organizations/healthnet/. We look forward to you responses and also submissions and suggestions. -- Orit Halpern, MPH.
