Mar 17, 2015

Posted in

Recently, I had the opportunity to attend a meeting in Geneva sponsored by Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, to discuss their new data quality and survey requirements for countries.

Strength in Numbers: The Power Behind Peer Learning Networks

Mar 16, 2015

Posted in ,

The BID Initiative is designed with an embedded peer learning network, the BID Learning Network (BLN).

The Role of Data in the Measles Outbreak

Feb 24, 2015

Posted in
