We, as frontline healthcare workers in Primary Health Care (PHC) sit isolated in our little corners. In order to impact on policy we have to be talking to each other more. AfroPHC has set up a Google Group to achieve this. There are weekly introductions of new members, introductions to key organisations supporting AfroPHC, sharing of useful summary posts on PHC in Africa and short summaries of important documents on PHC and UHC in Africa e.g. the World Health Reports on PHC and UHC.
It is a space for African PHC team leaders, where we can be comfortable sharing and developing our ideas. Use this group to share your ideas. You can join the Google Group just to network here by sharing something about yourself. Better still, join AfroPHC as a member here!
As we progress we are planning to develop special interest groups around rural health, NCDs, HIV etc. We are planning a series of AfroPHC Meetings to ensure we get to know each other even better. Check out the Meetings here.
