REACHOUT is delighted to be a co-sponsor of the Ugandan Symposium which will take place from the 21-23 February 2017, "Contribution of Community Health Workers (CHWs) toward attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)".
This symposium is being organised by the School of Social Sciences Public Health team at Nottingham Trent University (NTU), Makerere University School of Public Health (MakSPH) and the Ugandan Ministry of Health (MOH).
The event will be interdisciplinary and inclusive to those working in the health and development fields in order to maximise the themes and discussions about the value, importance and contribution of CHWs to the SDG agenda in Uganda, Africa and the global health and development community. Participation is invited from researchers, community health workers, policy makers, funders, implementers, civil society and other stakeholders from international, national and regional associations and professional organisations. You can download the symposium poster and we would be very happy if you would circulate it to your contacts.
