In the pursuit of its primary change objective “Every country with a ‘Human Resources for Health’ (HRH) strategy has a ‘Human Resources for Eye Health’ (HReH) strategy integrated within it” IAPB Africa held an Advocacy Training Workshop in Accra, Ghana, to train candidates from five pilot countries as advocacy advisors.
The goal of the workshop was to build advocacy capacity at a national level with the advocacy advisors going on to develop national advocacy plans for HReH and carrying out the implementation thereof, with support from the lead agencies, in their respective countries. The five pilot countries are Cameroon, Ghana, Kenya, Mozambique and Senegal.
The workshop which took place over five days was facilitated by Advocacy Consultant Mr Ian Chandler and along with the advocacy advisors was attended by members of the lead agencies from the five pilot countries and IAPB co-chairs.
True to the form of a workshop, using tools and techniques, capacity was built. The next steps are to excel at advocacy and influence change.
