The Overseas Development Institute (ODI), CARE International UK and GSK are hosting an event to highlight learnings from the CARE-GSK corporate partnership in Asia. The focus of this partnership has been on improving maternal and child health outcomes through building capacity of health workers, mobilising the community and developing sustainable partnerships between the public and private sectors. Approaches used have been highly innovative and effective in addressing the needs of the most vulnerable and marginalised communities in the region. The event will also discuss the role of the private sector in meeting the international development goals as we enter the SDGs era.

Chair: Laurie Lee, Chief Executive, CARE International UK

Panellists:

Dr Kara Hanson, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine
