Work Package Networking
In CEBHA+ we aim to promote the development and implementation of processes of Evidence-Based Health Care (EBHC) and Evidence-Based Public Health (EBPH) for its members and beyond. Our networking aims are to:
improve connectivity between African, German and other European CEBHA+ partners;
promote close ties with national and subnational policy-and-practice partners (also linked to CEBHA+ Capacity Building) and;
foster interactions with other current African initiatives pursuing similar goals.
Key elements of the Work Package Networking are the CEBHA+ mentoring programme, the CEBHA+ scientific exchange programme and annual networking meetings.
