An international summit with global child health experts and members of the Child Health and Mortality Prevention Surveillance (CHAMPS) network will be held at Emory University’s Rollins School of Health from November 11-12, 2016.

The 2016 CHAMPS Site Directors’ Meeting will provide a range of health practitioners, researchers, and scientists to share lessons learned, as well as make recommendations that will build upon efforts to improve health outcomes to prevent childhood mortality.

“We appreciate the Emory Global Health Institute (EGHI) for their support and look forward to the 2016 CHAMPS Site Directors’ Meeting...Establishing these sites is the beginning of a long-term commitment – and partnership – to discover the causes of child mortality and save children’s lives,” said Dr. Jeff Koplan CHAMPS Executive Director and Principal Investigator.

Nearly two dozen global health experts are scheduled to attend the two-day conference, in addition to representatives from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Emory Global Health Institute, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Public Health Informatics Institute (PHII) at the Task Force for Global Health and the International Association of National Public Heath Institutes (IANPHI).
