Event Details

Saving Children's Lives in Poor Nations - The B School Perspective

Millions of children will die this year from diseases that are easy to prevent or cure: diarrheal diseases, pneumonia from smoky stoves, etc.  Reducing this mortality requires familiar business-school skills related to of marketing and good management: promoting daily behavior change around washing hands with soap, finding ways to increase demand for safe cooking fuels, and so forth.   Professor David Levine’s research in India and Africa focuses on how we can create low-cost and scalable models of preventing child mortality and illness.  He research examines the optimal roles of government, the social sector, and private businesses.  This talk will summarize some of the lessons he has learned in his research about what works (and what does not).  The group will also work together on how to bring these solutions to scale.
