Associated Press Highlights MIT Global Health Class

The Associated Press highlights the work of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Global Health Delivery Project class, a competitive course that sends graduate students to Africa and India to evaluate projects run by partner organizations. For example, four MIT students traveled to the Kibera section of Nairobi, Kenya, to study why residents of one of the world’s poorest slums were not using a health clinic established by the U.S.-based non-profit group Carolina for Kibera. MIT professor Anjali Sastry, who runs the class, said, “My fondest hope is that we deliver an improvement to that organization that is sustained. Whether it’s to increase scale and efficiency or improve quality” (4/27).
