FAIMER is pleased to announce the selection of five winners of its first annual Projects That Work competition. They will be sponsored to attend the 2013 annual meeting of The Network: Towards Unity for Health (TUFH), to be held November 16-20, 2013, in Ayutthaya, Thailand. There they will serve as the panelists of a plenary session that will showcase projects that have been successfully addressing missions related to the conference theme of “Rural and Community-based Healthcare: Opportunities and Challenges for the 21st Century” for three years or longer, in order to give conference attendees insights about factors that have contributed to these projects’ success and sustainability. An open worldwide call resulted in 120 submissions from which five were selected by an international panel of 11 reviewers. The Projects That Work competition will be an ongoing feature of The Network: TUFH annual meeting. The next Network: TUFH meeting will be held in Fortaleza, Brazil, November 18-23, 2014.
