Dear Ladies and Gentlemen!

In the current issue of GI-Mail we present to you courses and congresses covering such diverse topics as Humanitarian Assistance, Clinical Safety and mHealth – Mobile Phones for Public Health.

I would like to draw your attention to a remarkable initiative: “e-Nable: Give The World A Helping Hand” is a global network of volunteers who are using their 3D printers, design skills, and personal time to create free 3D printed prosthetic hands for those in need  – with the goal of providing them to underserved populations around the world. Perhaps you would like to support this initiative, by volunteering or by making a donation? More information about this initiative can be found in the special section.

If you are interested in a new job or a training position we recommend you to take a look at our monthly job newsletter or the job offers on the GOING INTERNATIONAL website.
