    Hello – I am an MA student writing my dissertation on Zika virus and sexual and reproductive health rights. I was hoping to join the webinair today, but I was unable to download the software to access it. Will there be a transcript or recording that I may have access to after the session is over? Thank you.

      What type of problems did you have? internet connection or unable to download the software. Please share your experience so that we can fix the problem. Another webinar on Zika will be organized soon.

        Hi, thanks for your response. I was unable to download the software firstly as I was using a university computer and was not authorized to download anything onto the system. Then upon trying to download it onto my own laptop, it simply would not run the setup files – this however, is a problem with my own machine I am sure. I will watch out for your next webinair and ensure that I have access to a computer that will allow me to download the software from. Thanks again for your reply.
