On Saturday 13th August, we had our annual meeting for 2022 in Halifax, Canada after ISVEE. We had discussions on side meetings we had during the week and linking with collaborators. Kevin Watkins, Andrew Larkins and Ben Huntington presented a session on risk mitigation which gave the team time to discuss 3 main risks and how we will mitigate them. Grace Patterson gave an introductory session on the GBADs process model with time for reflection. Finally Wudu Temsegen and Theo Knight-Jones an update on the Ethiopian work and next steps. With these sessions from our different themes, it was great to see everyone in person and see the continuous hard work that goes into our programme!
