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. Launched in 2013, 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.
The 2018 Network: TUFH conference, co-hosted by the University of Limerick, will be held August 16-20, 2018, in Limerick, Ireland. This year’s competition will showcase projects that have been successfully addressing missions related to the 2018 conference theme, Community Empowerment for Health: A Multi-Sector Approach, for three years or longer.
