"PHE: Building the Foundation for the Next 10 Years" seeks to energize and expand the population-health-environment (PHE) community by engaging key actors in the field and related development sectors. The sessions include public events as well as smaller working group meetings. The series began in January 2008 with a discussion of ways to build on the success of the "Population, Health, and Environment: Integrated Development for East Africa" conference held in November 2007 in Addis Ababa.
Event summaries, videos, and presentations for the following meetings are currently online:
