Partners in Health together with the TB Coalition of the Americas are pleased to invite you to apply to participate in the 1st Regional Workshop for Socialization and Awareness in the ENGAGE-TB approach of the World Health Organization. This workshop will take place from the 23rd of September to the 27th of the same month, 2019, in one of the countries participating in the QRA-T-PIH grant of the Global Fund to fight AIDS/HIV, tuberculosis and malaria.

Estimado Dr. Rodríguez,

I am a faculty member at Case Western Reserve University, currently working
on a project about sustainability of community health promotion for TB in
Lima, Peru.
My collaborators are organizations of health promoters in Lima and we are
using Engage TB resources as we start to implement our plan. Our first
phase opens up with a forum in Villa Maria del Triunfo, Lima on October 4,
2019.
I was incredibly glad to learn about the workshop on socialization and
awareness of tb and was hoping to apply to participate.
I see that Peru is a country that is represented, however, the google sheet
application does not include Peru as "Pais Sede" nor it seems to allow our
organization to be located out of Mexico, El Salvador or Guatemala.

So I assume I do not qualify for this particular workshop.
However, I'd like to know if there will be online sessions or even a future
event in Peru.

Muchas gracias,
Francisca

Dear Sebastian:

My name is Stanley Blanco, I have received the invitation, I work at the La
Paz Departmental Health Service as the Planning officer. We are very
interested in participating in this upcoming discussion. As Dr Sergio Luis
Martinez is the head of the TB epidemiological control in the La Paz
department, he would be nominated, and if possible myself.
We have seen that the form linked to the inviatation only allows three
Central American Countries. My question is if there is another form for
the Andean countries?

Saludos
Muchas gracias
