O.R. in Eritrea
When IAOR prints an abstract relating to O.R. in a developing country, it is usually cross-indexed with the name of that country. So the latest "OR in a DC" abstract marks a rare event -- it is the first that has been included (as far as my records go) about O.R. in Eritrea.
The paper is:
Cost analysis of an integrated disease surveillance and response system: case of Burkina Faso, Eritrea, and Mali
Zana C Somda, Martin I Meltzerl, Helen N Perryl, Nancy E Messonnier, Usman Abdulmumini, Goitom Mebrahtu, Massambou Sacko, Kandioura Toure, Salimnta Ouedraogo Ki, Tuoyo Okorosobo, Wondimagegnehu Alemu and Idrissa Sow
Cost Effectiveness and Resource Allocation 2009, 7:1doi:10.1186/1478-7547-7-1
Papers with so many authors/co-authors are also rare events.
By the way, if you don't know where Eritrea is, the map shows it in the north-east corner of Africa, bordering on the Red Sea.
