Projects That Work

The Projects That Work competition recognizes excellent projects that have succeeded beyond initial implementation and have had a significant impact on health, the community, or the school, in order to encourage the development, implementation, and dissemination of more such projects. Now in its fifth year, the competition is sponsored by FAIMER as part of the annual conference of The Network: Towards Unity for Health (TUFH). Representatives of up to five selected projects receive sponsorship to attend the conference each year. Sponsorship includes air travel, hotel accommodation, and conference registration fee.
