Dear IAPHL Members,

Happy April!

In March, we had our two planned webinars. Both webinars were on the Design and Implementation of IMPACT Teams: one was in French on March 8th and the other in English on the 11th. As always, if you missed one of them, you can find the recording on the website. We are currently planning to offer one or two more webinars in April.

Our consultant group, ThinkPlace has begun their work to conduct a human centered design assessment to determine your capacity building and professional growth needs. They have now met virtually with some of our country chapter leaders. They will begin in April to reach out to certain chapters and to the entire membership (expect another important survey).

The secretariat has been working to “clean up” our membership files. We have been reaching out to those of you who have actually joined IAPHL more than once. Please, if you change jobs or want to change your email address, all you need to do is the following:

Login to, go to your account, and then from the drop down menu, choose profile. You then can update your email address and any other information that has change in your profile.
For those of you who are the early joiners to IAPHL, please make sure to go to your profiles and update your information. The information about our members helps us better understand our members and talk to our donors.

I hope many of you have noted our announcement that for the next two months we will be running a listserv submission contest. Do you have a good supply chain question that would make for a good discussion? If you are new to the field, share with other members what you have found to be the most challenging supply chain issue. Please do participate.

Hoping that you all are staying safe,


From the Desk of the ED IAPHL: April 2021
