Since the launch of the Health of People and Environment in the Lake Victoria Basin (HoPE-LVB) project, staff and partners have engaged key district, national, and regional health and environment officials in Kenya and Uganda. The goals:
- increase stakeholders’ understanding of the interconnectedness of PHE issues and the benefits of the PHE approach;
- increase the capacity of key stakeholders to communicate about the PHE approach;
- provide platforms for policy dialogue to influence regional and national stakeholders to integrate PHE into their programs; and
- raise the profile of the HoPE-LVB project.
