Field trip to HAI HQ Offices

Posted: Sep 24, 2013 · Posted by: Ahoua Kone

Last Friday, HAI received a visit from Dr. Adam Hoverman, Director of Global Health and Research at the College of Osteopathic Medicine in Yakima, Washington, and his students who were on a field trip to explore alternative approaches to Global Health work.  Adam was accompanied by about 25 students from the programs of osteopathy, nursing, or pharmacology, all of whom are interested in global health.  They wanted to hear about HAI experiences and particularly the challenges that we deal with in our respective project countries.  The field trip lasted for about 2 hours, starting with a welcome statement by Steve Gloyd who had just returned that afternoon from a field visit to Cote d’Ivoire.  We then took turns presenting our country programs: Sarah Gimbel presented on the history of HAI’s work with Mozambique’s HIV treatment program, Adam Granato gave an overview of the Cote d’Ivoire projects since its inception in 1992, and Mary Anne closed with a description of the work in Timor-Leste including the Mobile Moms (Liga Inan) project that has created direct communication via mobile phone between midwives and pregnant women for improved prenatal care services.  It was a great opportunity for dialogue on global health.
