When rural medical clinics in Pakistan started transmitting real-time performance data to policymakers, doctor attendance and inspections increased.
The Stanford Center on Global Poverty and Development hosts two different types of visitors throughout the year. Century faculty affiliates nominate distinguished visitors from leading academic and research-oriented organizations for periods from one quarter to one year. During their stay, visitors participate in seminar series and workshops across campus and disseminate their work through the Center’s working paper series. They are also invited to engage with the policy and business communities during events held at the Center.
The center is very pleased to also support departmental Stanford seminar series through the Short-Term Academic Visitors Program. The purpose of the program is to support extended visits for speakers at Stanford seminar series on topics related to global poverty and development by offering academic visitors access to office space in the John A. and Cynthia Fry Gunn building, internet access, and opportunities to interact with the collegial research community at the center and Stanford.
