COVID-19 and Beyond – Is the Private Sector Part of the Solution?
  • About

    Ensuring continuity of care for women, newborns, and children during the coronavirus pandemic requires a sustainable, holistic approach that brings together the public, private, and civil society sectors. Information, education, and skills-building need to be harmonized across sectors, institutions, and professional associations so frontline health workers are equipped with the vital skills, commodities, and resources to deliver timely comprehensive care in response to the pandemic.

    Please join Palladium’s webinar featuring USAID’s private sector engagement strategy along with program leaders in Afghanistan, India, and Nigeria who are adapting programs to local maternal, newborn, and child health (MNCH) needs in the COVID-19 context. The panelists will address pressing questions facing policymakers and program managers: What is the future of MNCH care beyond this pandemic? Could telemedicine be the answer? How is the private sector becoming part of the solution?
