The article in Field Exchange, November 2002, Issue 17: Scurvy outbreak in Afghanistan: An investigation by ACF and WHO, by P. Leborgne, C. Wilkinson, S. Montembault and MT Ververs draws heavily on the field report "Investigation and response to scurvy outbreak in 2 districts of Ghor province, Afghanistan (9 - 18 March 2002)" which was written by Sylvie Goossens, ACF, Yon Fleerackers and Zita Weise Prinzo, WHO. The article printed in Field Exchange 17 did not adequately acknowledge the principal investigators, who wrote this report.

Field Exchange would also like to acknowledge the team members in charge of the investigation in Taiwara and Chagcharan districts, Ghor province, Afghanistan: Dr. Yon Fleerackers, epidemiologist, WHO Afghanistan; Dr. Abobkar Rassouli, National Health Coordinator, WHO, Herat, Afghanistan; Dr. Sylvie Goossens, Action Contre la Faim, Taiwara Center, Taiwara district; Dr. Naser Ahmad, Action Contre la Faim; Mr. Abdorahim Turkmanan, nurse, Herat Hospital MOPH, Herat, Afghanistan; Mr. Shiragar Naib, nurse, Herat Hospital MOPH, Herat, Afghanistan; Mrs Zita Weise Prinzo, nutrition department, WHO Geneva; Mr Gregg Friedman, general coordinator, Medecins du Monde, Chagcharan district.
