This consultation will be open till the 15th of March. Do share this information with a larger group. We would prefer inputs that are sent on behalf of country circles or networks/organisations, though suggestions by individuals are also welcome.

Do send your comments on:

• the suggested themes and sub-themes of the Assembly
• suggestions regarding speakers, testimonies, A/V presentations, for one or more of the suggested sessions.

Each session (plenary and sub-plenary) is of 90 minutes and can accommodate, ideally, two keynote presenters and two testimonies. We want to allow reasonable time for discussion, so will have to limit the number of speakers per session.

When sending your suggestions, do keep the following in mind:

1) The purpose of this consultation on the programme for PHA3 is primarily to ensure that the programme reflects the priorities and concerns of country circles, networks and others, associated with the PHM.

2) When sending alternate suggestions for the themes and sub-themes, please do add a few lines regarding why you think your suggestions will add value to the programme

3) When suggesting names of people for the programme do specify the following:

a) The full name of the person
b) Contact details of the person suggested (at least the current email address)
c) A few lines about the person suggested, to understand how she/he would fit into the programme
d) The language in which the suggested speaker would speak

Based on the comments and suggestions we receive, and consultations within the programme committee of PHA-3, we shall share the next draft of the PHA-3 programme by the end of March.

We look forward to your active participation in building the programme for PHA-3. All comments should be sent to: [email protected]
