The HEAL project reshapes the health service delivery for pastoral communities in the Horn of Africa through One Health Units (OHUs) which address the needs of communities and involves them and actors in service provision at every step of the process. This ensures optimal integration across sectors.
In this webinar finale for 2020, HEAL’s very own Diana Onyango, Regional Project Manager, and Micol Fascendini, Public Health Consultant from CCM, will be taking us through to the HEAL project’s journey in the Horn of Africa applying One Health in the field. They will share the key discoveries from the One Health vulnerability assessment conducted during the inception phase of the project and how applying the concept of One Health Units is helping to change people’s lives. Join us on Thursday the 3rd of December at 1300 EAT to listen to and interact with HEAL project implementing partners.
