With discussants from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Global Affairs Canada, Government of Malawi, MCC, UK Department for International Development, UNICEF, and USAID, this conversation seeks to transform a conceptual framework into concrete methods for achieving change.

Please join us on December 10th.
