PROGRAM SCIENCE - ENHANCING HEALTH COVERAGE AND EQUITY THROUGH PARTNERSHIP

October 19, 2019 - The University of Manitoba Centre for Global Public Health (CGPH) has been working with global partners to improve equitable coverage of evidence-based health interventions. Using a program science lens which incorporates data use and problem solving within health programs, CGPH supports governments to address inequities and enhance transparency in governance.This session, presented at the 2019 Canadian Conference on Global Health in Ottawa, provides examples of global health programs in MNCH and HIV to demonstrate the use of data and evidence to improve program coverage and enhance equity and transparency in governance.  Watch the video...

A PATIENT TAKEOVER? INTEGRATING PROGRAM SCIENCE WITH COMMUNITY-BASED PEER RESEARCHERS

April 27, 2018 - A guided panel interview followed a set of brief presentations which described the pathways of peer researchers and their academic supporters in health intervention research using HIV as a preferred example. Lessons learned were provided on how to support the work of peers, nonprofit organization staff, and the work of new and established health researchers. This work is not only highly technical but also deeply symbolic and political. The speakers answered questions about working with “patient” peer researchers and whether a takeover is in the future.

PROGRAM SCIENCE IN HIV AND HCV

October 29, 2017 - Program science and related fields such as intervention research and implementation science emphasize research on programming and implementation issues, and the translation of that scientific knowledge into action to improve the population health. No area has a more persistent need for knowledge translation than the prevention and control of infectious diseases such as HIV, HCV and other STBBIs. Program science has evolved as a result of thorough analysis of research and implementation best practices across disciplines and content areas organizing the framework that describes and depicts the high-level processes necessary to move from discovery into action through translation of evidence-based programs, practices, or policies.
