On 30 June 2021, our Executive Director Darian Stibbe joined the Second World Health Organization (WHO) Western Pacific Region Partners’ Forum. As a panelist during the session “Health beyond the health sector – innovative partnerships for public health”, he joined other esteemed panellists to discuss the importance of partnering outside of the health sector.
Moderated by Page Snider, a senior adviser with the WHO in China, Darian shared his expertise based on the TPI experience with many health and non-health partnerships over the past decade. The Forum runs from 30 June to 2 July and combines plenary sessions with workshops, and focus group sessions.
