CAMBRIDGE, MA — Management Sciences for Health (MSH) will host two auxiliary events and participate in more than ten panels and presentations at the 36th Annual Global Health Council (GHC) Conference. Featuring the theme of “New Technologies + Proven Strategies = Healthy Communities,” this year's conference will host more than 2,500 health professionals from more than 100 countries.
MSH will host the auxiliary event “Strengthening Systems to Combat AIDS amid the Global Financial Crisis.” Moderated by Joyce A. Sackey from the Tufts University School of Medicine, this informal discussion will focus on the expansion of AIDS prevention, care, and treatment success in the face of the current world economic situation. Panelists include Alvaro Bermejo from the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, Daraus Bukenya from MSH, Karen Cavanaugh from USAID, and Princeton N. Lyman from the Council on Foreign Relations.
The Leadership, Management and Sustainability (LMS) Program will host the auxiliary event “Virtual Approaches in Management and Leadership: Achieving Results at Scale," highlighting MSH’s interactive, Internet-based distance learning programs. The interactive event will feature live demonstrations, stories, and photos illustrating the programs’ results from across the world.
Over the course of conference, MSH will also present two workshops on managing effective virtual forums and using cutting-edge leadership approaches to achieve results, as well as seven panel sessions on topics ranging from child health, tuberculosis, and antiretroviral therapy to innovative virtual strategies. MSH is also scheduled to present two poster sessions during the conference.
