Haas Business Students Win First Prize for NASG Implementation Project – 2013
On September 20, 2013, a team of MBA students from UC Berkeley Haas School of Business’s International Business Development Program won first prize at the 2013 Haas International Business Development Conference for their field research project on implementation of the NASG in Zambia. With the support of the Safe Motherhood Program, Puneet Agarwal, Molly Bode, Kate Morris, and Francis Wong traveled to Zambia, visiting hospitals and rural clinics and interviewing a wide range of stakeholders, from funders (DfID, USAID) and implementers (CHAI, Jhpiego) to government agencies (Ministry of Health) and clinical staff. Their research produced both an end-to-end analysis which provided recommendations for implementation based on each of those lifecycle steps, and a more generic checklist document for NASG adoption in any low-resource setting.
The team won first place at the IBD conference amidst strong competition from 140 of their fellow students in 35 teams. Click here to view their winning project video.
