I am minutes from taking off for a few weeks of research and work in Africa. First up, I am going to Ghana where I am working on a survey with Kim Yi Dionne from Texas A&M University to understand the importance of different health concerns to regular Ghanaians and to those involved in the health system and what factors might help to explain what they prioritize.
Then, I am off to Rabat, Morocco for a conference on maternal mortality. Morocco is one of those countries that has been a real outlier – the good kind – with regards to maternal mortality. I am really looking forward to engaging with the country officials who have been involved with this work.
I’ll be blogging and tweeting, while on the road when it is possible but I like to send out these notes in case any of you are also in those places and want to connect.Share on Facebook
