Program Conference

In February 2004, the Reaching the Poor Program sponsored a global conference that brought together both investigators that it had supported and other researchers examining how well health and other social programs reach disadvantaged groups.  The conference, part of the Program's dissemination effort, was designed to assemble as much evidence as possible in order to produce policy guidance.  The 36 conference presentations covered well over 100 programs.
