You’ll hear from key leaders in the Partnership about Strategic Plan highlights from 2023 and plans for 2024.  And importantly you can learn from Country Connectors making a difference to researchers on the ground, building a community of evidence users and increasing participation for global knowledge exchange.  And, space for questions and exchange of ideas to actively shape the Partnership.
