Dear Colleagues,

We would like to invite you to join the 5th Ask the Expert (ATE) Session of the Health System Action Network (HSAN) <www.hsanet.org> that will run from the 4th â 8th May, 2009.

The over-all theme for this session is "Lessons Learned in Strengthening Health Systems for Tuberculosis Control in Developing Countries".
