#GovernHealth Twitter Chat

Thursday, September 24, 10:00-11:00am ET
Join the conversation as the LMG Project moderates a Twitter chat on Effective Governance in Health.
Through effective governance, health systems become more resilient and better prepared to deliver effective health services. As the recent Ebola epidemic demonstrated, poor governance of national and international health institutions can undermine their vitality and limit their capacity to respond quickly.
Health governance experts including Management Sciences for Health's Jim Rice; the Health Finance and Governance Project's Jeremy Kanthor and Lisa Tarantino; and the Health Policy Project's Taylor Williamson, Alyson Lipsky, and Derick Brinkerhoff will contribute to the conversation.
Follow or participate in the conversation with the #GovernHealth tag, and be sure to follow these health governance experts:
