class updates

I'm so glad some of you are already finding your way around Blogger. Another tool to acquaint yourself with is the Blog This button. This is a browser add-in to your bookmarks tool bar that makes posting articles during your research very fast.

Yesterday Dr. Brown brought up Mr. Condom, the famous sex educator in Thailand. The NYTimes profiled Mechai Viravaidya in 1992. This interview covers his big return to public life in 2005. In an unusual case of promoting Best Practices research, India is now looking for their own brand of Mr. Condom.

Interesting set of articles. I think they underscore the need for government championing and backing in major public health projects. It's a shame that the situation in Thailand appears to have gotten worse because of lack of government support. Maybe there are other reasons for this decline?
