Through the Connection Service, the Commonwealth Health Hub connects over 700 health policymakers and professionals from across 53 Commonwealth countries. This connection happens via the Health Community of Practice, which is an email-based network at the heart of the Hub.
Once connected through the Community mailing list, members can query their peers for recommended knowledge resources, best practices, comment on draft research or policy papers, programmes and projects, and participate in virtual discussions or debates in a brainstorming format to identify insights and issues. Both queries and discussions can last 5-20 days, depending on the complexity of the subject or the interest that it generates. Rresults of the query or contributions to discussions are then synthesized by the Facilitation Team, with supplementary desk research, into a discussion summary report that is accessible on the Hub site.
If you would like to put forward any new topics or have suggestions to shape upcoming discussions please do not hesitate to contact the Facilitation team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
