WONCA Working Party on Rural Practice feature
In April, the WONCA world rural health conference was held in Dubrovnik and our very active WONCA Working Party on Rural Practice (WWPRP) met, both formally and informally.
The WWPRP is chaired by Dr John Wynn-Jones of Wales and he and the WWPRP social media secretary, Dr Jo Scott-Jones of New Zealand have fueled such a wave of enthusiasm from working party members that we have decided to make a special rural feature in this month's WONCA News. John and Jo are not just enthusiastic about rural practice but their enthusiasm supports the high level of activity we see from the WWPRP. They are true leaders and advocates for WONCA and rural practice.
