Let me take this opportunity to wish you all a wonderful Christmas season and a happy and healthy new year 2006 from myself and everyone in the EFA Board and Central Office in Brussels. I am delighted to be welcoming you to the sixth edition of EFA’s online newsletter, which is going from strength to strength. I have been asked recently ‘What is the purpose of the ezine?’ Generally, it is to provide you with information on current developments in issues related to allergy, asthma and COPD in Europe and to inform and educate the reader on related EU policy issues which we feel may be useful for you to know, so that you and us all as an EFA network can take action where needed and possible or discuss them with your organizations if you so choose. The ezine, along with EFA’s website, are EFA’s main information tools – they are electronic, fast, easy to distribute and share with your colleagues and up-to-date. We therefore hope that that both answer many of the queries you may or may not have voiced by email, phone or fax and we are always striving to improve the ezine and the website, so do send us your comments and constructive criticism. We are also very keen to hear your news, either for inclusion in the ezine or on the website, so please start thinking about what you can send us either sporadically or regularly by way of interesting and useful information about your activities and I will be writing more about this in the January ezine. Best wishes, Svein-Erik Myrseth - EFA President.
