I have been trying to watch the webinar on-line, but it is not possible due to the poor internet connectivity here in Niger. Could you please send me the slide show and any transcript of remarks (if it exists) by e-mail? And if there is anyone that I can follow up with especially on issues of engaging couples in negotiation around household decision-making, e.g. over finances, use of resources, etc. I would appreciate it.
