First conjoint WHO GHPC publication

We received great news from the WHO Regional Office for Europe two days ago: The final draft of 'Regions of Expertise: How Knowledge Hubs are boosting HIV prevention, treatment and care across whole regions' was approved as joint GHPC-WHO publication by the responsible WHO department.
And why does this matter? Because, from the start, the strengthening of knowledge hubs has been a joint undertaking by WHO and the German BACKUP Initiative. The upcoming publication describes the crucial role three such hubs have been playing in developing capacities in Eastern Europe over recent years; and why this model deserves continued funding. The report was written in close consultation with the knowledge hub coordinators and colleagues from WHO Euro.
If you have always wondered what the talk about knowledge hub was all about: Make sure to read this gripping story once it is published (less than a month to go).
