In order to further guide the Programme towards an effective engagement at policy level, a Policy Advisory Group (PAG) has been established.The First PAG Meeting was held in Lilongwe, Malawi, hosted by the Government of Malawi, from 24 -26 March 2009. The full report of this meeting is available from the above table.
