On the occasion, three concurrent sessions were organized for trainees to present the findings of their researches followed by reflections on questions and comments forwarded by respective examiners and the participants. In addition, group based Monitoring & Evaluation plans were presented and important discussion points were turned up. Eventually, a general discussion focusing on the general performance of the program was led by Dr. Alemayehu Mekonnen, Executive Director of EPHA. He reemphasized the very objective of the training and the need to cascading it through ownership of the Regional Health Bureau, and steered the discussion as he invited the participants, mentors, examiners and other participants for reflections. He then gave a close to the discussion capitalizing on the need to sustaining the training program.

The event was concluded with certificate award to the trainees and a closing remark by Mr. Teame Zegeye, representative from the Tigray Regional Health Bureau, the guest of honor. Mr. Teame appreciated the trainees, course facilitators and the coordinator for their commitment to bring the program into fruition and stressed on the importance of well-toned information in the health sector as well as in the fight against HIV/AIDS.
