Voices of Experience: A Conversation with Former Directors of USAID’s Office of Population and Reproductive Health

Organized by Center for Global Development

January 17
5:00 PM – 6:30 PM

Washington, DC

MORE INFORMATION AND REGISTRATION

(This event will also be a Live Webcast)

Join Center for Global Development (CGD) for a conversation with four former directors of United States Agency for International Development (USAID)’s Office of Population and Reproductive Health. Since the Office’s inception in 1969, the US government has played a substantial role in supporting expanded access to voluntary family planning around the world through technical assistance, diplomatic and policy engagement, and financial support. But differences in policy across administrations have meant that US leadership in international family planning has often faced periods of uncertainty. CGD is convening a panel to revisit historic experiences and to shed light on lessons learned that may be used to inform stakeholders in the current landscape.

Featured Speakers:

1) Duff Gillespie, Professor, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health
2) Liz Maguire, Senior Advisor for Reproductive Health and Rights
3) Margaret Neuse, Independent Consultant
4) Scott Radloff, Senior Scientist, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health

Introduction: Amanda Glassman, Chief Operating Officer and Senior Fellow, Center for Global Development

Moderator: Felice Apter, Visiting Fellow, Center for Global Development

This event will serve as an opportunity to discuss and celebrate the launch of a special supplement to the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene that reports on nine new contributions on the impact of malaria control interventions. Specifically, the articles document the success of various malaria control efforts (including the causal link between malaria intervention scale-up and reductions in malaria morbidity and mortality) and new methods for evaluating the impact of large-scale malaria control programs. Taken together, the articles represent a conceptual and practical framework for planning and executing a new generation of impact evaluations, with possible applications to other health conditions in low-resource settings.

Improving the Use of Economic Evaluation for Global Health Funders

A health policy decision is only as good as the information available to the decision maker. As countries strive to achieve Universal Health Coverage and funding from local governments and global donors is scrutinized, there is an acute need for more and better economic evaluation to inform government and donor investments in healthcare. To that end, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, one of the largest funders of health economic evaluation in LMIC settings, has partnered with an international collaboration of experts to develop the Gates Reference Case – a principle-based standardised methodology for good practice in the planning, implementation, and reporting of economic evaluation for informing priority setting in health. This session will introduce the principles of the Gates Reference Case, explain how and why the reference case was developed, and what this might mean for the conduct and use of economic evaluation and decision-making in LMIC.

The Gates-RC is an element of the International Decision Support Initiative (iDSI), a platform supported by the UK’s Department for International Development, BMGF, and the Rockefeller Foundation, for engaging with and responding to the growing demand for evidence-informed decision-making processes. iDSI involves a partnership between an increasing number of institutions around the world, including NICE international and the Center for Global Development.
