The first Reveal Forum of the year was held virtually on Wednesday, 23 June 2021. The Reveal Forum is a community event that takes place several times a year, which includes government partners, implementers and developers from ~ 28 organizations who are currently implementing Reveal, or are tracking the roadmap and are interested in using Reveal to improve the impact of health campaigns.
The objectives of the Reveal Forum are to provide community members with the opportunity to:
- give an update on any new features that have been developed, or are in the process of being developed, and what we as community members can expect as a result;
- share valuable lessons learnt through new or ongoing implementations, and why these are important in the context of operationalizing and scaling Reveal; and
- based on implementation experiences, provide a view on what is most needed, technically or otherwise, to better operationalize and scale Reveal in the future.
The goal of the Reveal Forum is to bring community members together so that all have a common understanding of the current and possible future state of Reveal; to understand who is doing what, where and how; and ultimately, to learn from and support each other in a collective ambition to scale and sustain the Reveal platform to help health and other campaigns achieve their intended impact.
The recent Reveal Forum was attended by approximately 35 community members. Kyle Hutchinson, Reveal Coordinator, opened the Reveal Forum by providing participants with an overview of the goal and objectives of the Reveal Forum, along with an update on some additional community building efforts, including the establishment of both Steering and Technical Committees.
