From our contacts in Denver University and from our web editorial staff we have gathered the following updates related to NHS activities around the globe :

1. In Australia they have screening programs starting up in almost ever province or state. New South Wales' program is doing very well and the latest news refer to a program starting in Victoria. An interesting remark is this : The government in Western Australia had decided to terminate their screening program because they were identifying only 1 in every 6000 births. But newer information indicates that they decided NOT to terminate the program. 

2. The UK's program is doing very well. A very positive issue (screening-wise) thing about their program is that they won't start up the hospitals until all the follow-through is in place.
