.HOW TO SUCCESSFULLY COLLABORATE ON TACKLING MEDICAL DESERTS WITH PARTICIPATORY CONSENSUS BUILDING

How can participatory consensus building contribute to effective collaboration on policy options to tackle medical deserts? During an upcoming webinar on January 27th, the partners of the Action for Health and Equity: Addressing medical Deserts (AHEAD), including Wemos, will share their experience with applying AHEAD’s participatory consensus building methodology in workshop sessions with stakeholders in areas affected by medical desertification in Italy, Moldova, the Netherlands, Romania and Serbia.

It is known from literature that successful implementation of health workforce policies requires strong inter-sectoral governance and consensus building among the different stakeholders involved. The AHEAD partners therefore held sessions with local and national level stakeholders in their countries, applying the methodology to increase the chances of identifying locally owned and sustainable policy solutions to counteract medical deserts and related health workforce challenges.

Join our webinar on January 27th, during which:

We will share the AHEAD participatory consensus building methodology and explain how it can be applied.
Representatives from the AHEAD country teams will share their experience with applying our methodology in Italy, Moldova, the Netherlands, Romania and Serbia.
