The NPCA has adopted international health as one of its three major advocacy initiatives. Included are women's health, AIDS and tuberculosis.

The undersigned have decided to organize an international health group of RPCVs and the Peace Corps community, for the purpose of supporting advocacy in this area. We warmly welcome the participation of NPCA Board members, other RPCVs or Peace Corps staff in this new initiative. The results of this meeting were reported to the NPCA Board at its meeting in Tulsa on January 31-February 2.

Organizing meetings were held at the offices of John Snow Incorporated (JSI), 1616 North Fort Myer Drive, Arlington, VA on Saturday, January 26, and February 23.

Directions to the meeting can be found below.

We welcome your participation and hope you can join us in setting the future directions of the International Health Advocacy Group on Saturday, March 16 at JSI.

I just saw Dr. Jaime Miranda Fox News/Cavuto's show. America hasn't done enough- billions aren't enough- what the people were better off under Sadaam's "care"? How much money has Dr Miranda given the US to take care of it's people? We've just had health care cuts for the elderly- educational cuts for the young- yet there is still money being sent to take care of others. How disgusting and greedy of this so called Dr. I have to wonder how long he has been under Sadaam's thumb
