Hello, everyone. My name is Daniela Rodriguez. I am a health policy and systems researcher and faculty member of the Department of International Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Welcome to the lecture on strategies for alliance building. In this lecture, we’ll be exploring debates between vertical and integrated approaches to disease control. We will also discuss processes for navigating politics in public health activities and the role of incentives. Let’s get started.
