Bringing great minds together: Collaborative learning to improve MCH

July 15 at 8:30-10 a.m. EDT (12:30-2 p.m. UTC)

The USAID Health Research Program invites you to the first of a dissemination series called Implementation Research to Practice: MCHN’s Health Research Program to highlight legacy learnings of the Program. The first webinar on July 15, 2021 at 8:30 - 10 a.m. EDT will focus on using collaborative learning approaches to accelerate better practices and policy for MCHN priorities. The HEARD, CIRCLE, and Ponya Mtoto Projects will provide examples of how communities of practice and knowledge management hubs across technical areas and regions supported by the Health Research Program amplified learning generated by USAID as well as other stakeholders/partners. The webinar will include presentations, a panel discussion, and time for questions and answers. Featured speakers include Sara Sulzbach and Cudjoe Bennett of the USAID Health Research Program, Jim Sherry of the HEARD Project, Samira Aboubaker of the CIRCLE Project, and Wilson Liambila of the Ponya Mtoto Project.
