A word from IPRA in difficult times

Dear IPRA members, I thought it timely to let you know how IPRA is coping and helping during the Coronavirus pandemic.

Message from the IPRA President: Getting comfortable with the uncomfortable   March 2020

I hope my message finds you and your loved ones in good health! COVID-19 has shocked our lives in all possible ways.

And along with that spread is another. That is an infection around the world of fake news, fake cures, fear and panic.

On the 31st of December we changed a nine to a zero and thus began a new decade. A beginning marked with tumult around the world. We have been watching the consequences of climate change as the forests of Australia burn, we are worrying about missiles flying in the Middle East, we are reading the next chapter in the long Book of Brexit, and we are feeling nervous as the Russian government steps down in the year of the next US Presidential election. If this has made you think that we are beginning a decade of turbulence, think again!
