YOURgb worked closely with PMNCH (Partnership for Maternal, Newborn & Child Health), CORE Group and UHC2030 to reconvene partners across the globe for a virtual summit to take stock of how COVID-19 is impacting on progress towards achieving universal health coverage (UHC).
The objectives for this exciting and interactive event, Lives in the Balance Summit, were as follows:
• To provide a space to reflect on progress and challenges and share best practices
• Identify ways to strengthen multi-stakeholder collaboration
• Mobilise meaningful action to protect the progress on UHC and women’s, children’s and adolescents’ health and well-being.
On Friday 11 December 2020, hosted live by Mercy Juma, broadcast journalist at BBC Africa, the event welcomed musical performances by Abelone Melesse, a panel session hosted by Former Prime Minister of New Zealand, Helen Clark and individual breakout sessions to discuss 4 unique topics with specialists in the field.
Our services included bespoke website and streaming platform design and management, content capture (video editing and animation creation), event show flow and scripting support, technical delivery, IT and platform support and post event analysis.
Running an online event requires a number of skills; here is a list of YOURgb’s event responsibilities:
