There has been a growing demand from countries within the same region to share challenges and positive experiences. The first round of regional coordination calls was organized in May/June 2023 and was positively received by in-country coordination teams, regional and global colleagues. In light of this interest, it was decided to extend the invitation of these calls to a wider audience. The Burkina Faso and DRC presentations kicked off the second round of calls for the WCAR region and Ethiopia represented the ESAR region.
The idea is to continue organizing regional coordination calls with in-country coordination teams (frequency tbd) and regularly organize a “call +” with extended audiences to highlight key points, communalities and/or challenges of the on-going responses.
