In early October, the RHInterchange (RHI) celebrated its third year online. At the Systems Strengthening Working Group meeting in Washington DC at the end of October, RHI Manager, Mimi Whitehouse and RHI Programme Officer, Jane Feinberg, from JSI discussed the group´s new M&E plan, the long-term strategy to transition the RHI to UNFPA, future collaboration with the Secretariat to achieve long-term sustainability of the RHI, and plans to conduct a mid-term review during the first quarter of 2008. Mimi also described plans to include third-party UNFPA procurements in the RHI database, as well as ongoing discussions to do the same with procurements by PSI and Crown Agents. Finally, she discussed the selection of the RHI´s last two focus countries: Nepal and Burkina Faso, the latter of which is also a priority country for the Global Programme and Project RMA.
