Global Foodborne Infections Network (GFN)

Electronic Discussion Group messages

The Global Foodborne Infections Network (GFN) Listserver messages are moderated and have been provided in English, Spanish, French, Portugese, Chinese and Russian. Since the initiation of GFN in 2000, over 200 messages have been sent on relevant topics such as programme updates, foodborne and other enteric infections background information, training information, conference announcements and current outbreaks. On occasion, WHO and other steering committee members have used the list to obtain information about available capacity in labs around the world and other specific global issues.

Persons joining the Global Foodborne Infections Network are added to the GFN mailing list. If you wish to communicate a topic to the other participants, please send your message to contact_gfn@who.int . The Listserver moderator views the messages and sends relevant communications to all participants.
