SMERU workshop for policy makers

In November 2012, SMERU organised a workshop for policymakers and practitioners identified through a stakeholder mapping and key informant interviews about the constraints and opportunity windows in relation to policy influence around care. An account of the workshop can be found here. 

The uptake of ideas and follow-up after the workshop has been successful, such that a representative from the influential Planning Ministry (BAPPENAS) will be joining the global network for further discussions in London in October.
