Depending upon the background and needs of your audience, you may decide to use some or all of the PowerPoint slides or supplement them with information relevant to your local situation.

At the beginning of the presentation, inform your audience about the organization of your presentation and how you would like to structure the discussion (i.e., take questions during the presentation or wait until the end). If you plan to include participatory activities, make sure your audience is aware of this. Depending on how much information you decide to use, you may want to break the presentation into two or more sessions. In its entirety, the presentation takes approximately 90 to 120 minutes to complete.
