Pre-conference workshop focuses on change ahead of 1st ECOWAS Good Practices in Health Forum


In what appears to be a prelude to the maiden edition of the ECOWAS Good Practices in Health Forum, around 120 participants comprised of officials from WAHO partner organisations, national officers of Ministries of Health in charge of adolescent and reproductive health, maternal , newborn and child health attended a preconference workshop at the Palace Hotel, Ouagadougou.

Also present at the pre-conference workshops were officials from international organisations, WAHO Financial and Technical Partners interested by the theme of maternal, neonatal and child health.

Addressing the participants shortly after the coffee break, WAHO Director General, Dr. Xavier Crespin thanked the workshop participants for turning up massively to attend the workshop. “An array of good practices and projects in pilot phases for maternal, new born and child health exist in our region but they remain largely unknown by the wider public, this workshop is an opportunity for us to showcase what we are capable of ” he said.

According to Dr. Crespin, examples of good practices should be identified and disseminated so that countries in the ECOWAS region could adopt and scale them up with a view to improving the health of our populations.

The day-long workshop which featured a panel group discussion, knowledge café and case study presentations has been designed to enable participants identify and describe key components of the scale up process for effective practices and programmes.

Among other expected outcomes of the workshop is shared information on application of change specific issues to the scale up process in connection with reproductive, youth, maternal, newborn and child health. It is hoped that participants at the end of the workshop will be able to identify actions that will support scale-up efforts in particular contexts.

Collaborating with the West African Organisation (WAHO) to conduct the pre-conference workshop are the World Health Organisation (WHO), USAID leadership, Management & Governance Project, Evidence to Action, JHPIEGO, Marie Stopes International and the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF)
