3 minute interviews: 2010 MIT Sloan students on their experience in Africa

This video was filmed by students in May and June 2010, after the second set of global health delivery lab student teams returned to campus from various project locations in sub-Saharan Africa. It presents the personal experience of a sample of students and is one of a planned five-chapter series of student reflections.

A dozen student teams had spent January of that year tackling operational, business, and management challenges in health care delivery in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, South Africa, Ghana, working on the key issues that each partner framed. Before they left for the field, students had spent four months preparing for their work on the ground, designing a practical solution to the problem they'd learned about from extensive conversations with their host organizations and with faculty, experts, and classmates at MIT. Our partnering host organizations included for-profit, faith-based, multinational non-governmental and community organizations, both large and small.
