Advocacy projects of the Program are started in the regions

28.03.2012

Projects supported by CF “Intellectual Perspective” within the Project “Advocacy: mobilization of political will” have rolled-out their activities in the regions since the last week of March.   

Grant winners in chosen oblasts enforced by the “Health Centers” activities and those of CF “intellectual Perspective” are responsible for the issues relevant for every region, which were defined during the constitutive ‘round tables’ in the end of 2011.

Project “Advocacy: mobilization of political will” is based on taking into consideration the regional peculiarities and needs in planning of the advocacy events.  All events were planned with participation of doctors, executives and NGOs of the oblast.

A new wave of call for proposals is planned in the nearest time (for Odeska, Khersonska and Kharkivska oblasts, AR Crimea and Sevastopol city); it is also planned to hold round tables in these cities in order to identify the most relevant problems of each region.

CF “Intellectual Perspective” is encouraging all interested parties to cooperate. For more details about the projects, please do not hesitate to contact the head office of the project (fip@fip.org.ua) as well as the ACSM-coordinators of the Program “Let’s Stop Tuberculosis in Ukraine” in each of the mentioned oblasts.
