Halloween greetings from the ICHAD and SMART Africa Teams. We hope you will enjoy our latest updates. This October, ICHAD founder and director, Dr. Fred Ssewamala was a featured speaker at the inauguration ceremony for Washington University’s new Chancellor, Andrew Martin. His talk highlighted the importance of investing in youth in Sub-Saharan Africa, and was backed by evidence from ICHAD studies. The full presentation can be found here.
In October, our country teams were incredibly busy, particularly with Multiple Family Group sessions implemented in 10 different schools and financial literacy trainings at 12 sites! Read more about all of our country teams’ accomplishments below.
In addition, three ICHAD/SMART Africa publications were released including recommendations for Implementation Scientists working in low-resource settings, as well as two protocol papers detailing ICHAD studies. We also welcomed two new team members to our U.S. Team, Jennifer Nakilembe and Fithi Embaye. Please join us in welcoming them both!
