Dear SCOPHeroes,

We hope that you are safe on these hard days.

We are more than happy to open the call for the World Hypertension Day 2020 small working group members! 

What is WHTND20 SWG? 

It’s a trans-regional small working group initiated by the Regional Assistants for Africa, Asia Pacific and EMR as the three regions share the same regional priority which is non-communicable diseases.

The SWG aims to brainstorm, design and perform a successful campaign for the celebration of the World Hypertension Day 2020 which will take place on the 17th of May, hoping to increase the level of the members knowledge and to motivate members to conduct activities on Hypertension.

For more information kindly read the SWG proposal

What is expected from the SWG  members and what are the selection criteria?

We are looking for committed and motivated members who are willing to spare part of their time in order to design an extraordinary campaign for their regions. 

As a SWG member you’ll be in touch with SCOPH IT and Program Coordinator for NCDs in order to design an online campaign that includes videos, infographics,..etc. besides coming up with a creative way to engage NMOs and make them participate.

Even if you believe you don’t have enough experience, we still encourage you to apply, share your ideas and learn new things from your incredible fellow SWG members..  

If that sounds like something interesting to you and you want to apply please fill in the APPLICATION FORM no later than Wednesday the 8th of April at 23:59 GMT.

If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact us through our emails: ra.scoph.africa@ifmsa.org , ra.scoph.asiapacific@ifmsa.org or ra.scoph.emr@ifmsa..org 

Warm orange hugs..

Sajib, Mohamed Mamdouh and Mohamed Osman.
