RedeAmericas meeting in Santiago
Representatives from the seven cities of the NIMH-funded RedeAmericas, including Sarah Conover, director of the CTI Global Network, attended the annual meeting last week at the University of Chile Salvador Allende School of Public Health in Santiago. The Rio de Janeiro and Santiago intervention teams compared facilitators and barriers in implementing CTI-Task Shifting (CTI-TS) in their two cities as part of a randomized pilot study. The findings from this pilot, which ends in November, will provide the basis for scaling up its use across the region. In addition, a group of local young investigators who have received intensive public health training and mentoring from RedeAmericas reported on how this program expanded their professional network and contributed to their careers.
