2011 global health delivery - highlights

This video was put together by Nicole Zenel (Sloan MBA 2011) using footage from the 2011 ghdLAB class.

This video is meant to showcase the experiences of students participating in MIT Sloan’s ghdLAB, which is an intensive course that has MIT Sloan MBA students working in the classroom and in the field with enterprises in developing and emerging markets to address problem posed by the entrepreneurs themselves. One major question is: Why do so many people fail to benefit from the vast progress that modern medicine has made.

In February 2011, 44 students travelled to Africa and India in teams of four to try to understand the challenges of delivering health care in resource limited settings and to lend their business skill sets to the organizations trying to solve these problems. The results of this course were life changing, for students, the organizations they worked with and the populations these organizations serve.

In this video you will see pictures and clips, taken by the teams themselves, showing the beauty of Africa, the communities’ students lived and worked in, and the interaction between students and their hosts
