URC at the CORE Group Conference: Developing low-burden M&E for nutrition SBC
On May 19, 2016, URC staff Cheryl Combest and Ingrid Weiss will be presenting at the CORE Group Spring 2016 Global Health Practitioner Conference in Portland, Oregon.
Cheryl and Ingrid will be sharing their experiences in a session entitled “Low-burden M&E for nutrition SBC: Brainstorm on challenges and methods using non-technical staff.” They will discuss the écoles des maris, or “husbands’ schools,” which are implemented in Niger and Burkina Faso as part of URC’s Resilience and Economic Growth in Sahel – Enhanced Resilience (REGIS-ER) program. The “husbands’ schools” are support groups that ensure men’s involvement in the well-being of their wives and children, specifically in the areas of reproductive health and nutrition.
This year’s conference focuses on “achieving health for all through multi-dimensional approaches.” Several of the sessions are being live-streamed and recordings will be available after the conference. Click here to learn more.
