Event description

Description

In the last publication from CBPHC Pioneer, Dr. Carl Taylor, he wrote “Real social change occurs when officials and people with relevant knowledge and resource come together with communities in joint action around mutual priorities” referring to the process of collaboration and effective partnering practices to achieve social change. Last year, the Astana Declaration at the Global Conference on Primary Health Care re-affirmed the critical role of primary health care (PHC) to ensure that everyone everywhere is able to enjoy the highest possible standard of health (WHO, 2018). While the PHC approach is foundational to achieving global goals for Universal Health Coverage (UHC) and the health- related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), achieving these goals will require effective partnerships and collaboration. This pre-conference sponsored by the Community-Based Primary Health Care (CBPHC) working group of the International Health Section will explore the challenges of power imbalances and tensions existing between community, donors, government, and civil society/NGOs/universities, as well as the role of effective partnering practices in CBPHC. This participatory and interactive workshop will bring together international and national experts, CHWs, program planners, policy-makers, CHW advocates, donors, and others interested in CBPHC and Collaboration to explore effective partnering practices and collaboration to achieve real social change in CBPHC.
