Workshop Agenda 

The following is an outline of the workshop agenda, and we ask that in preparation, you bring your thoughts and feedback: 

  • Introduction and objectives
  • Current state, what work needs to be done now and in the next 6-12 months.
  • What is ‘working well’ and ‘what needs to be improved’? 
  • Next steps – following the initial regional workshops, we plan to hold further engagement (mixed method delivery) with smaller in-depth Design Teams for each of the focus areas (funding, PMS/Notifications) during late February/early March 2024. Sector partners will be asked to self-select into the Design Teams to start deep-diving into each topic and begin co-creating solutions. 

We are aware that for many, the current interim funding arrangement for HPV Primary Screening for priority populations ends 1 April 2024. Therefore, the intent is to have an agreed funding approach by the end of March 2024.
