A project of the Federation of American Scientists
Network operated by HealthNet/SatelLife of Boston, Mass.

ProMED (the Program for Monitoring Emerging Diseases) was begun in 1993 by
FAS (the Federation of American Scientists).

A central goal of ProMED is to establish a direct partnership among
scientists concerned with emerging infectious diseases in all parts of the
world; building the appropriate networks to encourage communicating and
sharing information is a key objective. Reporting of incidents or outbreaks,
infectious disease problems of emerging interest, and discussions on how to
improve surveillance and response capabilities (including needs at the local
level) are especially encouraged.

ProMED invites and welcomes the participation of all interested colleagues in
the ProMED-mail electronic conference, which is moderated.
