For this workshop, participants will have the opportunity to share their program activities, lessons,
accomplishments, and challenges during a Structured Gallery Walk using a poster format. Each
poster will focus on how your work in health contributes to your country’s Program Approach
Poster: Each country office will develop 1 poster to be displayed at a Structured Gallery Walk
during the workshop. We will arrange for posters to be printed prior to the workshop.

with this activity prior to the workshop and in Tanzania. We hope this will be an interesting,
entertaining, and educational activity.
