Demystifying & Using Data for Community Health Impact
April 30- May 4, 2012
This year, CORE Group’s Spring Meeting of the Community Health Network tackled the theme of Demystifying and Using Data for Community Health Impact. 225 participants from 89 organizations and 17 countries (Bangladesh, Belize, Benin, Burundi, Haiti, Honduras, India, Ireland, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Madagascar, Malawi, Nepal, Republic of South Africa, Rwanda, USA) gathered over five days in Wilmington, Delaware to address a range of technical issues related to designing, delivering and assessing community level programming in low and middle income countries. Sessions covered a variety of topics, including implementation science, ethnographic methods, operations research, sustainability, appreciative inquiry, mhealth, and community health workers. In addition, technical topics included community case management, nutrition, maternal mental health, family planning, working with young adolescents, malaria in pregnancy, anemia, and NCDs.
