Enter the Community Forum

RHO's Community Forum message board is a medium for sharing messages with colleagues worldwide. Give it a try -- discuss reproductive health issues, announce events, or tell the world about your work!

NOTE: Questions about individuals' personal health concerns or posting of advertisements and commercial messages are not permitted.

If you have a question or comment for RHO but do not wish to have it posted  on the Community Forum and distributed to email subscribers, please send an email directly to [email protected] .

Using the Community Forum

RHO's Community Forum message board is designed to allow RHO users to easily communicate with one another and to read conversations posted by other users.

Many types of messages are appropriate for posting:

  • questions and requests for assistance;
  • announcements of research findings, conferences, or documents;
  • replies to questions or comments from other users.

RHO's message board is not available for commercial advertising. Any messages advertising services or products for sale will be deleted by the RHO webmaster and the author will lose the right to post messages in future.

Subscribing to email versions of Community Forum messages:

If you would like to receive email versions of all messages posted to the Community Forum, submit your email address in the form at the bottom of the Community Forum index page. You also can cancel your subscription from the same form.

To submit your own message:

  • Click on the "Post a New Message" link at the top of the Community Forum Message index page. This will take you to the "Post a New Message" form.
  • Fill in all the fields (name, email address, and subject), then type in your message and paste it into the message area.
  • If you want to include a link to a web page in the body of your message, enter the URL (web address) and a name for the web link into the forms below the message area.
  • Then either preview your message before sending it or post the message to the Community Forum area. Your message should appear in the Community Forum immediately.

Hint for composing subject lines:

The subject line is one of the most important parts of your Community Forum message since it is all that readers will see until they choose to read the full message. Compose your subject line carefully. Try to choose words that most clearly define your message and will attract the kinds of readers you want. For example, if you are seeking advice about whether or not to recommend breastfeeding to an HIV-positive mother who does not have access to clean water, don't simply type "Help!" in the subject line. A better subject line would be "Need Advice on Breastfeeding by HIV+ Mother."

To delete a message you have submitted: Once you have submitted a message to the Community Forum, you cannot delete it yourself. If you would like to have a message deleted, contact the webmaster at [email protected].
