Bridging the Gap


Cracking the Nut Health Concludes

Our first Cracking the Nut Health conference on July 18-19, 2016 brought together almost 200 participants from 25 countries to discuss “The Role of Communities in Building Resilient Health Systems.” Participants engaged in a lively and participatory atmosphere on topics including mHealth innovations, the role of frontline health workers, engaging with the private sector, data access and ownership, and many more thought-provoking quandaries in this fast changing world.

From the conference evaluation, several participants indicated that they planned to take many of the best practices presented and apply them to their ongoing work. While the conference provided many insights, as highlighted by Rebecca Kohler of IntraHealth International in this blog post, the discussion will continue beyond the two days in July.
