    The Moth, the internationally-acclaimed organization dedicated to the art and craft of personal stories told live, is bringing two storytelling workshops to Nairobi, Kenya, in February 2020, in partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

    Through its Global Community Program, The Moth conducts workshops with individuals around the world, elevating stories that highlight world issues, dissolve stereotypes, and bridge social divides. Guided by Moth instructors, workshop participants shape selected life experiences into well-crafted stories, which may then be presented to peers and to the world at large.

    These workshops will be offered free of charge, and will be made available to a total of 24 people (12 per workshop). Accommodation, travel, and meals will be provided for all workshop participants. The schedule will be as follows:

    Workshop #1:

    Monday, February 3rd, 9 AM - 5 PM
    Tuesday, February 4th, 9 AM - 5 PM
    Wednesday, February 5th, 9 AM - 4 PM
    Workshop #2:

    Saturday, February 8th, 9 AM - 5 PM
    Sunday, February 9th, 9 AM - 5 PM
    Monday, February 10th, 9 AM - 4 PM
    Participants will arrive in Nairobi on the evening preceding the first day of the workshop, and will depart in the evening of the workshop's final day, or on the following day.

    If you participate, you will:

    be introduced to principles of personal narrative, developed by The Moth through its work with thousands of storytellers since its launch in 1997;
    identify one personal story; and
    receive one-on-one coaching to help craft your five-minute story.
    Who should apply for this workshop: individuals who identify as people who help develop vaccines, help distribute or set up systems to deliver vaccines, people who have benefitted themselves from vaccines, or people who have family members or loved ones who have benefitted from vaccines. In addition, we strongly encourage advocates working in the areas of immunization to apply, but anyone is welcome to share a story about his/her work towards a world where we no longer fear infectious diseases.

    Application Deadline: Applications will be accepted through Friday, November 8th, 6:00 PM EST and participants will be notified soon after that. If you have any questions, please contact us at globalcommunity@themoth.org.

    Elimination of cervical cancer as a public health problem is a flagship project of WHO.

    In May 2018, the Director-General of the World Health Organization announced a global call to action towards the elimination of cervical cancer, underscoring renewed political will to make elimination a reality, and called for all stakeholders to unite behind this common goal.

    In January 2019, at its 144th Session, the Executive Board requested the Director-General to develop, in consultation with Member States and other relevant stakeholders, a draft global strategy to accelerate cervical cancer elimination, with clear targets for the period 2020–2030, for consideration by the Seventy-third World Health Assembly, through the Executive Board at its 146th session.

    The WHO Secretariat is holding a web-based consultation on the draft global strategy. The web-based consultation is open to Member States, organizations of the UN System, academics and non-State actors.

    Please review the draft global strategy and participate in the online survey (click on the link to access the survey).

    Submission closes: 10 May 2019

    Please contact cxca@who.int if you have any questions.

    This year's World Immunization Week (WIW) campaign continues to focus on the theme “Protected Together #Vaccines Work” and celebrate Vaccine champions from around the world who help ensure we are all protected, at all ages, through the power of vaccines.

    These are the real everyday heroes: health workers including community health workers, logisticians, children, community influencers, parents and advocates, scientists, local media, who are going above and beyond to encourage vaccination. Their stories will be shared via social media and through digital storytelling.

    For suggestions on how you can support the movement and help spread the WIW messages, check out the starter toolkit at:
    www.who.int/docs/default-source/documents/world-immunization-week-starter-toolkit-2019.pdf?sfvrsn=4a3070ba_2
