IPEG Follow-Up: Aman Bhandari and Agora Partnerships

Science ClubLast Thursday, the DC chapter of the International Private Enterprise Group (IPEG) met at the Science Club in downtown Washington, DC. About 30 people were on hand to hear presentations from Aman Bhandari, a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Maryland and Beth Boomgard of AED’s Private Sector Health Initiatives group.

Aman has posted a follow-up to the meeting over at his excellent Technology, Health, and Development blog – check it out. In his post, Aman gives us some more data on Aurolab and the Aravind Eye Hospital, about which he presented on Thursday.

In other IPEG-related news, the Aspen Institute and Dalberg – Global Development Advisors recently announced a ’Private Sector in Development Initiative.’ One of the founding organizations in the Initiative is Agora Partnerships, whose staff is very active in IPEG (Ben Powell presented at our January meeting).

The next IPEG meeting will be held towards the end of March; stay tuned to for more details.
