Health was the smallest of the four themes but as a relatively new area for COL and PCF this enabled focused discussions on some core topics, frank exchanges about difficulties as well as successes, and an opportunity for people to get to know each other. We feel that it is best to see the theme as the start of a conversation set to continue beyond PCF5.// There were some 40 people presenting under this theme from 15 countries across all Commonwealth regions and other parts of the world. There were 10 sessions, including two workshops, held over two days. Three main topics were covered - HIV/AIDS; health worker training; and, Open Educational Resources and working across borders.
