Ben and Jaspal’s Excellent Adventure at the Global Health Council

Jaspal and Ben will both be at the Global Health Council meeting in DC next week (Only some of you will get the bad movie reference above). If anyone would like to meet up drop us an email at THDBLOG at gmail dot com.
From Ben (cross posted):

I’m leaving Berkeley early to hike a short segment of the Appalachian Trail this Memorial Day weekend before next week’s conference. There will be two presentations on OBA in East Africa. Tuesday 3-5pm Claus Janisch will talk about the Kenya OBA program for targeted subsidies for antenatal and maternal delivery services. Look for the panel A2: “Getting Creative: Innovative Models for Health Care Financing“.

Thursday 2:30-4:30 Richard Lowe presents the eponymous Uganda OBA program’s “Output-Based Aid Program to Treat Sexually Transmitted Infections in Uganda”. Not sure why it’s currently booked in the “Chronic Disease” roundtable section; it’s scheduled for the Ambassador Ballroom (hotel map). I’ll update this post if the room changes. Readers may be interested too checking out the Abt Associates’ Private Sector panel scheduled 1-4:30pm Tuesday.

From Jaspal:

I’ll be checking in to the conference on Monday night and will be there through the end of the week.  On Thursday (29-May), I’ll participate in the Human Resources in Health, Community Health Workers poster session.  I’m still planning my schedule for the week, but do know I’ll attend the Get Smart: Technology and Community Health session hosted by AED.
