Thank you to AusAID.

As AusAID ceases to exist as an independent entity, ChildFund Australia has commended staff who served in the agency for their dedication, skills, and commitment.  Personally I have enjoyed working with dozens of AusAID staff since taking up my role here at ChildFund, and wish them all the best in this challenging transition.  

The integration of AusAID into the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has been modelled, apparently, after similar recent moves in Canada.  Ian Smillie provides some very interesting thoughts on this here.
