  • First we’ll take a moment to consider the very rationale for CORE’s existence. We’ll start simple with the rationale for CORE Group’s very existence. The shapes within the United States represent our diverse membership of US non-profit organizations
  • The three driving forces that together make up the field of international development—none expendable, yet often weakly linked.
  • 62% decrease in under five deaths in Sofala Province and 42% reduction in U5MR in Gaza Province, Mozambique. $305 per Life Saved in FH’s current CG project.  The Diffusion of Innovation grants that paid for documentation and a CG manual.  Add that more than 10 years ago only 2 PVOs were using the model. 
  • Mention coalition for CS
  • Revisit original question of “health system response” in terms of project design. Rather than the formal health system, think community health system.
  • Transcript

    • 1. CORE Group Overview
    • 2. CORE Group generates collaborative action and learning to improve and expand community-focused public health practices for underserved populations around the world.
    • 3. Life without CORE Group

      countries, especially women and children
      Focus on community approaches with local partners
      Put our hearts “into the field”
      Measure our impact
      And then, our diversity helps us help each other.
      We differ by…
      Vision and mission
      Size
      U.S. location
      Age of organization
      Funding sources
      Technical approaches

    • 9. The “Community Health” Approach
      Why is it the missing piece of the health system puzzle?
      Hard for government to reach (end of the line)
      Entails complex, in-depth effort, sometimes difficult conditions
      Hope held out for short cuts
      Can be ignored
      Why is it necessary?
      Most “health care” takes place at home, in community
      May be the only way to reach some populations
      Potential for deep-rooted, sustainable change
