I’ll miss this week’s call. I’m at an all day ODK meeting. (Jan probably will too since she’s at the same meeting.)

These are comments on hosting Openmrs2017 in Tanzania from current and former grad students of mine. Probably early days but a constituency to make it happen going forward I think. -----—

Dear Hamish

I totally agree with this brilliant idea, let’s work out to know what is required for preparations and logistics to be the host country.

Many thanks,
