For nearly a decade, the Abundance Foundation has supported the Global Health Delivery Intensive Program at Harvard University in training hundreds of mid-career global health professionals from a total of 54 countries. Run collaboratively by Harvard Medical School, Harvard School of Public Health and the Brigham and Women’s Hospital, the program builds capacities in global health delivery concepts and skills for mid-career global health professionals from around the world.
In 2019, Dr. Stephen Kahn, founder of the Abundance Foundation, delivered a lecture to the Global Health Delivery Intensive program at Harvard’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health, outlining challenges and lessons from the Haitian Cholera epidemic and what it means for Global Health workers today. As we approach the 10 year anniversary of the devastating earthquake in Haiti, these lessons are more important than ever.
