ASSIST Legacy Webinar Series: Strengthening Health Systems to Achieve Better Outcomes

Since 2012, USAID has funded the USAID Applying Science to Strengthen and Improve Systems (ASSIST) Project to improve health care service delivery, strengthen health systems, and advance the frontier of improvement science in USAID-assisted countries. This webinar series explores some of the project’s most important results and learning in the past five years to achieve an AIDS-free generation, prevent child and maternal deaths, and effectively combat other public health threats.

Each webinar will address a different topic and draw on results and learning from multiple countries. The format of the one-hour webinars, which will be recorded for later viewing, will be one or two short presentations, followed by comments and discussion with the moderator and/or expert commentators and audience questions. ASSIST resource and key experiences related to each webinar topic will also be provided in a two-page briefer, including materials not covered in the specific presentation.

Schedule:  7 monthly webinars, beginning March 8, and ending on September 12, 2018 9:00-10:00am EST by registering you will be able to attend the webinar and view the recording afterwards.

About USAID ASSIST
