Announcing the release of the Cracking the nut health publication!
We are excited to announce the release of the Cracking the Nut Health 2016 Publication!
The role of communities in building resilient health systems is complex and ever evolving. While two days is certainly not enough time to address all of the issues around communities and resiliency, Cracking the Nut Health was a great start. In the past month and a half, we hope that participants have taken the time to muse over the many discussions at this learning event, and started finding opportunities to incorporate these ideas into ongoing work.
Here at Connexus, we've been reviewing and compiling what we felt were the important takeaways from the conference. We are pleased to announce that the conference publication from Cracking the Nut Health: The Role of Communities in Building Resilient Health Systems is now available online. The publication synthesizes the main lessons learned from the conference and highlights specific cases of innovative methodologies and technologies presented at the conference.
It is our goal that this publication is used not only as a reference for the lessons learned, but also as a catalyst for further discussion around this important topic and a guide for improving community health programs.
We would like to thank USAID, JSI, IntraHealth International, and The Global Health Council for extracting and reviewing the lessons learned from the conference and the speakers who assisted in refining their inputs for the publication. Please feel free to circulate the publication to others who might find it as a useful resource..

Connexus is pleased to announce the first ever Cracking the Nut Health conference!
What will it take to transform how we design global health interventions and channel investments to build resilient health systems that are responsive to clients and communities? The rapid pace of technological, scientific, socio-demographic change offers opportunities for unheralded achievements in health while also causing unforeseen disruptions that threaten the ability of communities and health systems to adapt and thrive. To achieve the ambitious targets set out in the Sustainable Development Goals, the global community needs smarter and more cost-effective, responsive investments in health that create synergies among people, communities and health systems and promote resilience. Cracking the Nut will bring together diverse global health practitioners and thought leaders to examine how individuals and communities can contribute to building resilient health systems.
