Together with the community and civil society representatives, ICSS and WACI Health will work to provide as much information as we can from calls and meetings held within the ACT-A framework, regular updates in the form of “Briefs” on how Community and CS Representatives are structured within ACT-A and other items such as calls to action.
- Health System Connector
- Facilitation Council
On September 4th 2020, civil society were asked to provide 2 representatives to the first ACT-A Facilitation on September 10th. A very shortened selection process was held and Dr’s Fifa Rahman and Carolyn Gomes represented Civil Society at the first ACT-A Facilitation Council on September 10th.
They had both asked for time for interventions and were both able to address short remarks at the FC which you can find here.
A more transparent and fully open selection process will be initiated in the coming days to permanently fill those seats.
Host: The Sherpa, in partnership with FIND
