The Niger Global Policy Area / Master of Development Practice capstone team has returned safely to Minneapolis. The team is pictured above (from left to right: Dr. Susan Beebout of EERN, Gbaike Ajayi (MDP), Christine Papai (MDP), Gilles Ouedraogo (MDP), Jan Saxhaug (MPP)).
This project is focused on assisting the Evangelical Church of Niger (EERN) with the development of a health care mutual based out of their clinic in in Niamey, Niger. They spent three weeks in January interviewing clinic users, non-users, and key informants to gather information to assist in the formulation of recommendations on how this mutual can optimally be designed.
