On January 10, 2014, DCP3 series editor Dean Jamison participated in the fifth annual Emerging Markets Symposium at Egrove Park in Oxford, United Kingdom. This year’s symposium topic was “maternal and child health and nutrition in emerging markets.”
Dr. Jamison gave two presentations during the symposium. The first focused on problems of maternal and child health and nutrition in emerging markets. The second session was on integrating lessons learned from public, private and voluntary sector interventions to improve maternal and child health and nutrition in emerging markets.
About the Symposium
The mission of the EMS is to bring together authoritative and influential leaders from governments, the public and private sectors, and academia to address sectoral issues that are critical to human welfare in emerging market countries; to enhance public understanding of those issues; and to promote changes in public and private sector policies and practices to implement their recommendations.
The EMS was funded by grants from the C & C Alpha Group and contributions from Green Templeton College.
