The planners, not wanting to lose momentum, came up with an alternative plan, to showcase advocates around the world. Those international advocates who had expressed interest in attending the 2020 event were invited to participate, and asked to provide a 5-7 minute video to highlight their advocacy work in their countries.
These videos show who advocates are, what they do and the value they bring to patients.
What comes across in each video is that patient/health advocacy is recognized as a way to ensure people have a voice and assistance as they navigate their complex healthcare systems regardless of where they live. The voices of advocates are unified no matter where we live!
