A two-week training seminar was conducted by UNICEF in Ethiopia, in May. Teams comprising of representatives of Ministries of Health, UNICEF, Academia and NGOs from four countries participated: Ethiopia, South Africa, Kenya and Somalia. The purpose was to develop capacity to develop trainers who can provide training in the region and also to develop capacity to implement ProPAN.
