SMA has been working on a ‘rapid response’ mechanism so that we can mobilize quickly in regard to medical anthropological issues of public or grave concern. We are presently testing a time-limited, immediately focused Pop-up Interest Group or ‘PIG’ mechanism, to complement our vibrant SIG (Special Interest Group) program.
In light of the emergent Zika situation we are launching an early trial run of the PIG mechanism with a Zika focus. We’ll evaluate the effort within a few weeks, to see whether the mechanism is viable and beneficial.
If you would like to be part of a pop-up Zika interest group, please go tohttps://www.facebook.com/groups/1650483251869010/ and ask to join.
