Last week, SAI Regional Coordinator Maria May was one of 1,800 participants in the second Global Symposium on Health Systems Research held in Beijing, China. Much of the conversation centered on achieving universal health coverage, and both Bangladesh and India were highlighted for progress and innovation towards achieving this goal. Several Harvard faculty, including Drs. Peter Berman, Richard Cash, and Bill Hsiao presented on their research. One evening, the Harvard School of Public Health sponsored a alumni and faculty reception that approximately twenty people attended. Maria presented a poster on BRAC’s combination approach to community health workers. BRAC University was one of the co-sponsors of the event.
