Second Masters of Public Health LiST training in Bamako


March 15, 2019 – Drs. Halimatou Touré (National Institute of Research in Public Health - INRSP), Souleymane Sawadogo (National Agency for Telehealth and Medical Information Technology - ANTIM), Youssouf Keita (Agropolis International), and Mr. Ibrahim Téréra (Center for Research and Study for Child Survival - CREDOS), all members of the National Evaluation Platform’s Technical Task Team, led the second year of LiST training at the Université des Sciences, des Techniques et des Technologies de Bamako (University of Science, Techniques and Technologies of Bamako - USTTB)’s masters of public health programs.

This workshop included the theory behind the tool, how to manipulate the software, and topic-specific areas such as subnational projections, maternal health, and nutrition in LiST. Students were also exposed to how LiST has been used for decision-making at the national level in Mali, and were invited to reflect on how LiST can fit into the broader sphere of decision-making for governments as well as NGOs in Mali.

We thank our local partners for their efforts towards another successful edition of this training, which is now part of the curriculum for all Masters of Public Health students at the UTTSB.
