Virtual AfroPHC Workshop

Dear colleagues

Please join us for the Virtual AfroPHC Workshop to be held 4-7pm over three days 9th-11th September 2020. The theme is “Building Teamwork for PHC in Africa”. It is intended to be a truly interactive African experience that is free and open to anyone interested in building PHC in Africa. Please see more details and register for the AfroPHC Virtual Workshop.

The focus will be on addressing three questions
• Who are we? Getting to know the ambulatory primary health care (PHC) team in Africa
• What does the community expect from ambulatory PHC service delivery in Africa?
• Who should be part of the PHC team and how should the PHC team work in ambulatory PHC service delivery in Africa?

The workshop webpages will be open five days before the meeting to allow registered participants to see each other’s short video answers, including panellists. The sessions will be characterised by robust moderated discussion with panellists, group discussions and then group feedback. This will be punctured by short videos and online team games.

Our aim is to bring together national leaders of the PHC team: nurses, clinical officers, doctors, community healthcare workers, community leaders and all PHC team members to ensure we truly build teamwork in African PHC. Your role in this will be critical! We hope to issue a joint statement to the UN General Assembly later in September.

We would also love to get you, as key figures in African PHC and participants, to respond to these questions in a short 15min video that will be available to all participants. See the attached guidance for the videos.

Pray, keep well and safe
