ExpandNet and the Global Implementation Society (GIS) are providing a free webinar on applying the ExpandNet/WHO framework, tools and approach to support scale up of health and development interventions in Uganda and the DRC. The virtual event will be hosted on Thursday, November 12, 2020 from 8:00 AM – 9:30 AM PST. Please register here.
In addition to briefly laying out ExpandNet’s framework, tools and approach, the webinar will highlight country experience from Uganda and the DRC where ExpandNet/WHO scale-up guidance was applied from the earliest stages of project conceptualization through to planning and managing the scale-up process. Three project experiences will be discussed including: 1) an integrated population/health/environment project in Uganda and Kenya called HoPE-LVB; and 2) an effort to develop a model and strategy to advance implementation of a successfully tested approach to building family planning service capacity in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Speakers will be Mr. Charles Kabiswa from the Ecological Christian Organization in Uganda, Dr. Alexis Ntabona who is a senior ExpandNet consultant based in the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Ms. Laura Ghiron who serves on the ExpandNet Secretariat from the US.
