USAID’s Asia Bureau, through the Health Finance and Governance (HFG) project, has been working in Burma and Indonesia to build local capacity for using implementation research as a tool to design and improve systems that support universal health coverage (UHC).
This briefing will discuss how to make implementation research tangible and accessible to donors, researchers, and country stakeholders pursuing UHC in different country contexts. Using lessons learned from Burma and Indonesia – two countries at different stages of the journey to reach UHC – we will discuss the challenges of context, timing, and organizational structure when planning implementation research for UHC, as well as how to encourage the use of implementation research findings to strengthen UHC-related policies and their implementation.
This event will take place at the USAID Global Health Bureau and will be live streamed through Adobe Connect.
How can your impact measurement and management (IMM) practice leverage the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)? We invite you to join this webinar to learn more about the SDGs’ connection to IRIS, and to see how two different investors are integrating the SDGs into their impact measurement and management (IMM) practices.
Realizing UHC will require deliberate, tailored communication strategies that effectively engage and improve knowledge of and create buy-in for change among a diverse group of stakeholders – including political leaders, health care purchasers, providers, patients, suppliers, and civil society groups.
Join USAID’s Health Finance and Governance Project and the Joint Learning Network for Universal Health Coverage as we reflect upon country-level challenges, experiences and best practices in leveraging strategic communication to achieve UHC. We will also be launching two resources – Strategic Communication for UHC: Practical Guide and accompanying Planning Tool – designed to help practitioners plan and implement effective communication strategies for UHC.
Following the launch (May 16th) of the FIBR report, “Artificial Intelligence: Practical Superpowers,” we are hosting a follow-up webinar to present the paper and its insights.
As one of the first reports that looks at AI applied to financial services in Africa, this webinar is for fintech companies and FSPs in Africa, that might be interested or looking to move into AI.

Development organizations are increasingly designing and engaging with children and young people online and through mobile devices. The digital world is rich with opportunity yet rife with safeguarding pitfalls. How can we ensure safe spaces for digital engagement? Can we make the most of digital data while also protecting people’s privacy?

Digital platforms and communication tools have transformed the way we seek information and interact with others. Organizations are utilizing the power of digital products to deliver impactful messages and influence positive change in both online and offline communities.
However, alongside these opportunities, there remains a burning question: can digital interventions actually influence behavior change? Join us for this first webinar of our two-part series with creative non-profit Girl Effect and social science think tank New Knowledge to learn more about how to design digital interventions to deliver behavior change.
The nature of work has changed and will continue to change, in ways that are hard to predict. But, all indications are that traditional full-time work for one employer will continue to diminish, while other forms of work arrangements flourish. Commonwealth has engaged in research to increase knowledge about the nature of work through the eyes of financially vulnerable individuals working in non- traditional arrangements. We engaged with over a thousand workers from across the country in four ways: a national survey, in-depth interviews, focus groups, and online. Join us for our webinar 2:00 p.m.-3 p.m. EDT on May 17th to learn about our surprising findings.This research was generously supported by the Rockefeller Foundation and the Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth.
