World Health Worker Week Twitter Chat

Date(s):
April 03, 2018 10:00am to 10:30am EDT

Please join us on Twitter for a chat focused on amplifying the voices of frontline health workers as advocates for policy change.

IntraHealth International @IntraHealth, the Frontline Health Workers Coalition @FHWCoalition, Seed Global Health @Seed_Global, and the organizers of SwitchPoint @SwitchPointIdea will host the chat, sponsored by Medtronic Foundation @MDTPhilanthropy during World Health Worker Week (April 1-7) and ahead of IntraHealth’s annual SwitchPoint conference (April 26-27).

The chat will explore how health worker voices, advocacy, and policy merge; highlight examples of how health workers are already using their voices and stories to influence health policy; discuss challenges and solutions to more meaningful inclusion of health worker voices in policy/advocacy; and generate ideas for empowering more health workers to be effective advocates.

Join us by adding your input and using #WHWWeek during the chat.
