Participants came from Nigeria, Kenya, Malawi and Switzerland. Among them were the director/national coordinator and administrative staff of the Department of Public Health of the Ministry of Health for Nigeria.This is the first time that this training has been hosted in the United States.

ToP Facilitators, Dennis Jennings and Judy Weddle, are on the IMDP faculty and work with two other faculty members from India, Indu Rao and Viswanath Gopalakrishnan.

The training focuses on influencing, networking and partnership skills and includes ICA's Technology of Participation (ToP®) participatory approach launched in 2010 and it continues to be a valued course among health care administrators.
