Precision Public Health: transformative approaches to target and measure interventions to efficiently make impact

Population numbers and disease burdens rarely are reported at lower than district level. If disease was uniform across populations, and populations were spread evenly across space, interventions would be easy to plan. But we know this is not the case; more often than not, distribution of disease is heterogeneous. Knowing where disease burden is highest is critical to target interventions and reach the most susceptible. Knowing where people are is also critical, and in many developing countries with rapidly growing populations, good population data are lacking.

Panel: Lessons About Scale
Join this panel as they present findings and lessons learned across the spectrum of an SMS reminder and incentive program for immunization services---from development to evaluation to scale. Presentations will be ordered along the continuum of a scaled program to take you on a journey --- from concept and development, to pilot phase, to a randomized controlled trial, to a scaled program –-- with presenters focusing on the roadblocks, results, and lessons learned specific to their section.
