The joint WONCA Working Party on Rural Practice (Rural WONCA) and Toward Unity for Health (TUFH) Institute Series is being launched as part of the 17th Wonca World Rural Health Conference over four months starting 16th October with the conference opening ceremony.

Chairs: Bruce Chater; Roger Strasser; Pratyush Kumar; and Alejandro Avelino


We are committed to addressing the needs of the most vulnerable populations by creating communication and knowledge sharing e-learning platforms for global and national interprofessional and intersectoral communities of practice that build each participant’s respective capacity.

We are guided by the values that all teach and all learn and we all learn best by doing. Using proven adult learning techniques and interactive video technology, we connect health providers with global thought leaders in regular real-time collaborative sessions. The sessions, designed around case-based learning and mutual coaching, help Global and Regional Participants gain the knowledge and skills required to improve upon existing models and services.
