Twenty-one participants from 10 countries (Benin, Cambodia, Cameroon, DRC, the Gambia, Kenya, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Tanzania and Uganda) and 3 partner organisations (Roll Back Malaria partnership, Sanisphere and WHO) came to Mombasa to learn and share their experiences with responses to malaria. The workshop style was markedly different from normal. Rather than learning from experts participants learned from each other and from experience. They operated in a rank free environment, where everyone’s voice was equal and where it was easy to exchange knowledge. The setting was non hierarchical. No titles were allowed, even during personal introductions. Materials generated during the course of the workshop were distributed at the end via a CDrom, rather than as prescribed reading ahead of time.
