ANNA KALBARCZYK: Hi, everyone. I’m Dr. Anna Kalbarczyk, a faculty member at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the Assistant Director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Global Health. Welcome to this lecture on policy engagement, where we will explore the importance of engaging policymaking stakeholders in global health programs, using the polio eradication program as an example. I’ll provide some contextual examples as well to help frame how engagement approaches used in one context may not fit everywhere. Thank you for joining me.
