In line with the original AeHIN GIS Lab spirit, the Health GeoLab Collaborative is conducting workshops and meetings as a way to share experience, expertise and knowledge across the region as well as address some important HIS geo-enabling related issues.
Here are the list of workshops and meetings organized since the launching of the AeHIN GIS Lab:
