THE CARTER CENTER (President Jimmy Carter, Chairman)
CO-SPONSORS NEW LIST:  IHP-NET
 
INTERNATIONAL NETWORK FOR INTERFAITH HEALTH PRACTICES
 
A new and powerful means has been implemented to assemble a global community of persons acting in faith and working on health.  Through a special partnership, the Interfaith Health Program of the Carter Center and the Congregational Nurse Program of Saint Francis Hospital of Evanston, Illinois, have created the "International Network for Interfaith Health Practices (IHP-NET)."
 
IHP-NET is an Internet electronic forum for dialogue and resource sharing among persons of all religious traditions, regarding the dynamic relationship between spirituality and health, especially its practical expression in the advancement of human wellness.
 
This forum welcomes community and spiritual leaders, health care providers, health promoters, policy advocates, and educators the world over.  These include public officials and community builders; clergy and non-ordained; physicians, nurses, congregationally-based and public health practitioners; and university faculty and students.
 
Presently, IHP-NET features an electronic mailing list (E-mail) and an anonymous FTP (File Transfer Protocol) site, including anonymous FTP by E-mail.  Other electronic interfaces are planned as persons gather online, including Gopher and World Wide Web.
 
Members of IHP-NET will soon be able to download electronically archived texts of project best practices, newsmaker interviews and speeches, graphics, and computer utilities.  Participants may announce their symposia, training sessions, and other events; post newsletters or professional papers; share their thoughts and reflections with the world.  This network will allow peers to communicate not only by straight E-mail, but also by live colleague-colleague discussions on a variety of faith and health issues.
