Mapping the Road to Better Health

GHC created the infographic Mapping the Road to Better Health to illustrate the relationship between the health Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and to demonstrate the breadth of the SDGs in promoting good health. If you chose to print the graphic, we recommend using 11 inch by 17 inch paper. We hope you find it useful! 

GLOBAL HEALTH ROUNDUP

Global Health Mini-University
The 2016 Global Health Mini-University (Mini-U) will take place on March 4 in Washington, DC. Mini-U is an annual day-long learning forum for Global Health professionals and students. The conference agenda contains a variety of innovative sessions highlighting evidence-based best practices and state-of-the-art information. Register online.

Report by the Commission on Global Health
The Commission on Global Health released a report addressing the neglected dimensions of the current public health system in countering infectious disease threats. The report used the 2014-15 Ebola outbreak and other recent cases as evidence and cited strengthening public health as the first line of defense.

Preventable Stillbirths
The Lancet published a five-paper series on ending Preventable Stillbirths — an effort also undertaken by USAID. While it is reported that 2.6 million stillbirths still occur annually, USAID continues to be involved in efforts to end preventable child and maternal deaths though interventions involving improved access to family planning, high-quality antenatal care, and facilities with skilled birth attendants.

Women Deliver 2016 Conference
The Women Deliver 2016 Conference is shaping up to be the largest conference on the health, rights and wellbeing of girls and women in over a decade. Early bird registration is only available through the end of January. Register here.
