12th Annual CHOP Global Health Conference - October 10, 2020
Don’t miss this year’s 12th Annual CHOP Global Health Conference, “Power, Politics and Pediatrics: Assessing the Impact of Governance on Global Child Health.”
The 12th Annual CHOP Global Health Conference will explore how politics, governance, and leadership affect global child health. In low-, middle-, and high-income countries around the world, these key factors influence health systems in powerful ways, and affect healthcare delivery.
This meeting will bring policy, political science and global child health experts together to share approaches for working with and within various political systems to positively impact child health. The meeting will also challenge and equip attendees to become advocates for child health within their own systems at the local, national, and international levels.
The conference will feature poster presentations on a range of pediatric global health topics and keynote addresses by Wilmot James, PhD, Columbia University, Doreen Ramogola-Masire, MD, MSc, University of Botswana, and Donald Schwarz, MD, MBA, MPH, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:
- Critically assess the benefits and consequences of different policies on the health and well-being of children
- Recall at least two ways in which research can inform policies that improve child health
- Identify at least three ways to advocate on behalf of pediatric patients
