REMINDER: Proposing unconference topics before OHIE19!


Just a gentle reminder, the OpenHIE Community in collaboration with the Ethiopia Ministry of Health will be hosting the
2019 OpenHIE Community Meeting (#OHIE19) in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, 4-8 November 2019

In response to community requests this year we’ve been trying something new to prepare for the meeting. We’ve set up a way for community members who are attending #OHIE19 to propose
unconference session topics and even vote on their favorite topics before the event. These proposals can be items you want to see discussed or maybe even sessions you want to facilitate yourself.
This process is meant to encourage community members to share and be transparent about what they want to get out of the meeting and also help the planning team to organize the meeting so you get the most out of it. If
you would like to see what people are sharing, propose a topic, or vote on a topics you can
go to the OHIE wiki page here
