AfroPHC also had a three-day Workshop to get members of the PHC team engaged in developing key ideas about PHC in Africa.

  • “What does the community expect from ambulatory PHC service delivery in Africa?”
  • “Who should be part of the PHC team”
  • “How should the PHC team work in ambulatory PHC service delivery in Africa
