Launch of the PCI Global Advisory Council

We are delighted to welcome a new network of advisors to PCI who will be providing a wealth of collective expertise, knowledge and perspectives to inform our strategic growth and development. This diverse group of people will help ensure our future relevance and impact by providing advice from their field of work and identifying opportunities to extend and deepen our impact. At the inaugural meeting this week members got to know each other and shared where they felt their own area of work could best support PCI and each other.

“I’m delighted and honoured to bring together this new Advisory group and very much looking forward to what they will help us achieve. We want to ensure we have global perspectives on our work and we hope this group will challenge us to see where else PCI can add value and challenge us on how we best position ourselves to strengthen primary healthcare globally in the intersection of other global challenges.” (Dorcas Gwata, PCI Chair)
