Conference Updates

Introducing the 2011 conference Keynote Speaker

Charlotte Eddis, Haiti Health Reconstruction Coordinator, US Government

The complexity and scope of the USG Haiti health reconstruction strategy—which prioritizes health system strengthening as well as health outcomes and represents a departure from past USG practices—demands the integration and unification of a single USG health sector team implementing against an integrated USG health sector strategy. A formalized USG coordination mechanism has been designed to manage the implementation of the new USG Haiti health reconstruction strategy.

Ms Eddis leads the interagency health team, consisting of agency field leadership from DHHS/CDC and USAID, to support coherent, consistent and faithful execution of the USG Haiti health strategy. Prior to working for the US Government, Ms Eddis worked at Dalberg Global Development Advisors in Geneva, Switzerland, providing strategic advice to health and development programs in 17 countries (including Burkina Faso, Cape Verde, Ghana, Haiti, Mozambique, Nigeria), as well as at headquarters level (all health-related UN agencies including the World Health Organization and its partnerships including the Health Metrics Network, Roll Back Malaria Partnership, Unitaid; Global Fund for AIDS, TB and Malaria; World Bank; Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation). She has a Masters in Development Management from the London School of Economics and a Bachelor’s degree in Modern Languages (French and Italian) from the University of Oxford.
