Annual Report 2008

The year 2008 represented a milestone for me as October 1, 2008 marked a year since I took over as the Executive Director of the INDEPTH Network. This 2008  progress report hence reflects activities of INDEPTH under my full year of stewardship.
I will start by thanking all stakeholders who have made this first year a fulfilling one – the Board of Trustees, the Scientific Advisory Committee, site leaders, working group leaders and their teams, institutional partners/collaborators, and my indefatigable and efficient team at the Secretariat. On behalf of INDEPTH, I wish to express gratitude to our investment partners – various funding organisations - who have supported us in our quest to make 'people count' and improve their lives in the developing world.
