Yes well the title is a tad ambitious but…
We know that there are quite a few people who disagree with the idea of encouraging the use of Bednets for prevention of insect transmitted disease. Is encouraging donations for bed nets just a way of salving peoples’ conscience about helping the “poor in Africa”? Or it about working alongside communities to help them determine their health and wellbeing? We will be having a discussion about these questions during the afternoon of our Bed-In @ Bluecoat Liverpool.
We welcome comments and questions for our discussion; responses will be posted on these pages.
