Stuff on the net

On March 10, 2009, in links, stuff on the net, by Karen Grepin

Greetings from Accra! Here is a roundup of some interesting reads on the net:

1. Via Bill Brieger, a link to a blog that outlined some of the challenges in translating bed-net ownership to utilization: African housing. I’ve also observed this a great deal in West Africa where lots of people sleep outside because of the heat at night. Your bed net is not very effective when you are sleeping outside.

2. Cholera is rising in 9 countries surrounding Zimbabwe.

3. The MIT Global Entrepreneurship Lab’s new Global Health Delivery class grand finale will be this Wednesday. Students from this really cool course present their findings. Could be really interesting, and I wish I could make it. To read more, link to Anjali Sastry‘s blog.

4. A thoughtful comment from Shanta Devarajan on the role of user fees – providing incentives to providers. User fees were a big item today at the AfHEA conference.
