Seeing is Believing Workshop – Africa projects
Location: Garden Court Marine Parade
Description: In this workshop, mid-level staff working on Seeing is Believing funded projects in the Africa Region, will share their experiences and specific achievements from their own work and locations. They will have the opportunity to be exposed to new approaches from staff working in similar situations, in order to adapt ideas to improve impact in their home locations. Specifically, they will:
• Build their networks with other mid-level staff and eye health practitioners
• Increase their knowledge across a wide range of eye health areas
• Learn effective strategies for enhancing service provision and improving uptake
The event will be facilitated by
Sally Crook (Seeing is Believing Programme Manager, IAPB);
Susan Evans (Seeing is Believing Project Officer, IAPB);
Sarah Chemonges (Seeing is Believing Project Accountant, IAPB);
