Bill and Melinda Gates Institute Hosts Third Annual Summer Institute
Fifty-five mid-career and upper-level administrators from around the world came to Baltimore, Md., July 5-15, 2005, to enhance their knowledge and challenge their beliefs on standard reproductive health practices. The 2005 Summer Institute in Reproductive Health and Development was sponsored by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health’s Bill and Melinda Gates Institute for Population and Reproductive Health. Participants could take part in any one of three two-week seminars: reproductive health, strategic leadership or research methods.
