The World Bank and its partners are pleased to offer a series of inter-regional knowledge and learning seminars through the Global Development Learning Network (GDLN) on issues that are of high priority when dealing with Avian and Human Influenza (AHI) preparedness. The Global Development Learning Network is a partnership of more than 100 Distance Learning Centers that use advanced information and communications technologies to facilitate knowledge exchange and have the skills and experience to connect organizations and communities working in development in a timely and cost-effective manner.The seminars will provide for an exchange of knowledge, the sharing of experiences and good practices and lessons that have been learned. All information and resources that are developed for use in these seminars will be made available to the Bank and its partners for application and use, as appropriate.
