CINI 2018, like its predecessors in 2010 and 2014 is designed as an outcome focused interactive conference. The context of building healthy Civil Society thorough Innovation, Technology and Engagement in health Care. The meeting is not a “conference e” in the traditional sense, where an expert gives presentation and learner take the message for its use home. These sessions of the conference are sharing of the work being done by the speaker to build further depth and capacity for the project. It is what we call Active Interaction and Networking. So everyone attending the conference is a speaker in their own rights and integral to the conference. Each session is further enhanced by designated Champions who will enhance post conference follow up and are expert in the area with strong commitment.
