24 Hours to Nigeria: Partnership for Health II


Dear Friends, 

You will have noticed that things have been a bit slow on the blog lately. We have been busy putting together a conference Nigeria: Partnership for Health II

In organising this with colleagues in the Public Health Foundation of Nigeria – two things have made quite an impression. 

Firstly is the incredible power of volunteerism in our community. Its been an amazing and awesome experience, working with colleagues, friends and sometimes complete strangers in putting this conference together. People have risen way way above the call of duty and this gives me incredible hope for the future of the health sector in our country. 

The second is the power of technology; from basic email, to facebook, twitter, to this blog – technology is empowering people that have been outside the debates for much too long. Now they are getting involved again. 

But we are pushing this even further !

For those that cannot attend Nigeria: Partnership for Health II, we will be livestreaming the plenary sessions. To access the livestream, please  go to http://www.livestream.com/nigeriahealth at 9.20 am (UK time) on 06/11/19

There will also be the opportunity to send your questions to the speakers by tweeting them on Twitter to @ikeanya or sending an email to ike.anya@gmail.com

See you at the conference or see you online!
