Upcoming Satellite Session at 7th Global Symposium on Health Systems Research

 

Countdown 2030 and the Improve Project will hold a satellite session about effective coverage measurement at the Seventh Global Symposium on Health Systems Research (HSR 2022) in Bogotá, Colombia, on November 2 from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. The session will be open to both in-person and virtual conference attendees.

Effective coverage is an important methodological approach that accounts for quality of care when estimating coverage. This in-depth session will share new methods and results, discuss data interpretation and use, and provide an opportunity to develop skills through a small group case study.  Presenters will include Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health faculty members Agbessi Amouzou, Emily Carter, Elizabeth Hazel, Safia Jiwani, Abdoulaye Maïga, Melinda Munos, and Ashley Sheffel. Panelists will include representatives from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, MOMENTUM project, African Population and Health Research Center, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, Ministry of Health and Social Welfare of Tanzania, and Ministry of Health of Kenya.

Health Systems Global convenes the global symposium every two years, bringing together a range of people involved in health systems and policy research and practice. HSR2022 will take place at the Ágora Bogotá Centro de Convenciones from October 31 – November 4, 2022, with approximately 2,000 health systems researchers, policymakers and practitioners from around the world.
