Mozambique: Workshop on Public Access to Health Information

By all accounts this was very successful and stimulating workshop which was reported on national TV, Radio and in newspapers in Mozambique.

A quote from one of the organizers Aissa Issak:

“The group of participants is very mixed (doctors, librarians, journalists) and that brought a  lot of debate. We didn’t stick to the programme, since we allowed some flexibility, what was really a good idea”

The event was  organized for IFLA/FAIFE by Partnerships in Health Information working closely with the local team in Maputo led by Flatiel Vilanculos of the WHO Country Office with his colleague Aissa Issak of the Pedagogical University. It was facilitated by Professor Paul Sturges, Loughborough University and Flatiel Vilanculos. A full report will follow later.
