Pancit Bihon


by DHS’s helper

at DHS’s home

-Salcedo Village, Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines-

with select meeting participants

At WHO WPRO, “DHS” = refers both to the Division for Health Sector Development and to the Director of the Division.

DHS (the division) is responsible for the public health law project, including the consultation on the project earlier this week.

For the evening after Day 3 of OODL, DHS (the director) invited some of the meeting participants people over to her place for dinner, most of whom comprised prior colleagues and personal friends, nothing to do specifically with either consultation.  Even though I was the lead organizer of the meeting, I was rather surprised by the invitation.

In this home, books with titles like Intersectoral Governance for Health in All Policies – co-written by DHS – constitute coffee table literature.

The Consultation on Overweight, Obesity, Diabetes, and Law ended quite well.  What an experience.  I don’t feel like thinking, much less writing, about it for the time being.
