Collaborate, a forum for global leaders, is a Summit experience designed for international representatives who are either leading national orphan care movements in their countries or desire to begin one. Join other national leaders from around the world to share expertise, make new connections, learn best practices and add your voice to CAFO Global Network projects and objectives that are key to vibrant, locally-led orphan care networks. Collaborate begins as a pre-Summit intensive, continues throughout Summit through a specially-designed workshop track, and concludes with a post-Summit lunch and afternoon workshop.

  2. To understand foundational building blocks of best practices and the latest research to wisely guide regional/national orphan care networks.
  3. To gather working groups to collaborate on CAFO Global Network projects and objectives to benefit the global movement.
  4. To continue development of attendees’ leadership skills to better serve their emerging/growing networks.
