The most important consultative process for the implementation of BHER, including monitoring for progress, was the Annual Partnership Meeting, which brought together the Partnership Committee and other supporting members from the BHER partnering institutions.
Project Leads and Directors guide all Project work, coordinate and facilitate the collaborative activities of Project Partners, and direct and supervise all staff according to the structures indicated in the Project Organization Chart.
Project Leads hold weekly staff and executive meetings and received monthly reports from all staff.
