My second WPRO Year-End-Party (YEP) (see previously 6.340 YEP!).
To my knowledge, we are the only Regional Office that convenes a year-end-party.
The theme this year was The 90s. Most of the presentations by the divisions didn’t really have much of a recognizable/cohesive creative concept — was anything from the 90s recognizable/cohesive?!?! — except DCD (Division of Communicable Diseases), which parodied Men in Black for infectious disease control — festive!!!! — and DHS (Division of Health Systems) (my new home), which performed a medley of songs representing the five attributes of Universal Health Coverage — funky!!!!
“Mo Money, Mo Problems” represented EFFICIENCY (i.e., allocative efficiency in health care expenditures), performed by me and AC (from the Health Policy and Financing unit), she rapping lyrics adapted to address health financing issues — I know!!!! — and I beatboxing — I know!!!! I now understand why singers these days use those earphones, as neither of us could hear the other over all the cacaphony, likely resulting in a disjointed performance (if any clips should ever appear online).
