Thanks to Croakey’s supporters

And, finally, I would also like to take this opportunity to acknowledge and thank the organisations that have supported Croakey over the past year; particularly the Public Health Association of Australia, which organises the Croakey funding consortium, which also includes the Epidemiology Unit of the Victorian Infectious Diseases Reference Laboratory; the UNSW Research Centre for Primary Health Care and Equity; the Australian Health Care Reform Alliance; VicHealth; the Australian Health Promotion Association; and RaggAhmed. (More details here).

I would also like to thank Crikey, which provides logistical and other support and encouragement, and members of the Crikey Health and Medical Panel, who generously volunteer their time (often late at night) to contribute articles.

Thanks also to other contributors and, of course, to readers. I am looking forward to more healthy debate and discussions in 2012.
