The Bulletin aims to provide an iterative environment between the participants and the international community in order to:

a) provide information on the Leaders in International Health Program;

b) disseminate and reflect upon relevant topics related to health and international relations;

c) create a space for discussion and sharing of opinions;

d) share studies and information;

e) analyze news about public health issues; and

f) call attention to international treaties and agreements related to country team’s topics.

This Bulletin has strong linkages with the Interactive International Health Rooms managed by the country teams and serves to provide information on the participants’ work in the program. Given its electronic format, the Bulletin is open to comments and suggestions from readers and interested parties.
