Notes from GATE workshop in September 2015

On September 9th 2015, before the AAATE Conference in Budapest, the WHO GATE Initiative held a network meeting.
In the evening there was an informal working dinner allowing for interaction among the participants. Representatives of international organizations and high-level experts made short 5 minute speeches, sharing their view on the strategic aims for the AT sector and a roadmap for realising these aims.
The chair of the evening, AAATE president Evert-Jan Hoogerwerf, invited the participants to contribute to the writing of a “State of Play document” by writing on “post-its” achievements, challenges, actions needed and available and needed resources. The “post-its” collected at the end of the evening (reflected in the bold text below) form the basis of this report. The following report i the gathered results from the workshop.
