    FACE-UP Workshop 2 – Identify solutions and develop a roadmap

    The second workshop (3 Hours) will be designed to be a follow-up to Workshop 1.  Attendees will be provided with the results of Workshop 1, plus additional supplemental materials, beforehand and will discuss the following topics:

    • Update/feedback on the outcomes of Workshop 1
    • How can we address the gaps, issues, and obstacles – to help countries succeed in implementing respiratory protection for children?
    • What are some likely solutions?
    • What are the remaining knowledge gaps that need to be addressed via future research?


    o            Roadmap (to potentially include research gaps, policy needs, standards gaps, marketplace/supply chain solutions, etc.)

    o            Outline of a white paper, to be published in JISRP


  • FACE-UP Workshop 3 will be an invitation-only review of the white paper outline, before it advances to drafting by the Education Committee.
