The Power of Health in Every Mama's Hand
The UN Foundation's Asif Khan will stop by Seidenberg HQ on Thursday, March 27 to talk about mobile health initiatives at UNF and Mobile Alliance for Maternal Action and how you can take action.
Join Asif Khan, from the UN Foundation (UNF) on Thursday, March 27, at 6:00 p.m. in Seidenberg HQ at 163 William Street as he introduces the UNF and Mobile Alliance for Maternal Action (MAMA) to those interested in learning about the ways in which mobile apps can help solve age-old issues around the world.
According to the UNF website, “the UNF links the UN’s work with others around the world, mobilizing the energy and expertise of business and non-governmental organizations to help the UN tackle issues including climate change, global health, peace and security, women’s empowerment, poverty eradication, energy access, and US-UN relations.”
Khan, who has been with the UNF since 2011, currently works with the Director of Global Partnerships, based in New York, on sustaining and building corporate and NGO partnerships for the UNF. His previous role was as the Global Coordinator for MAMA, where he oversaw communications, coordination, finances, and outreach for MAMA Global in Washington, as well as MAMA’s three country programs in Bangladesh, South Africa, and India.
Through the MAMA Global Learning program, a team creates tools and resources to strengthen new and existing mobile health programs that provide trusted information to mothers. MAMA has developed free, adaptable messages informed by experts in maternal, newborn, and child health. These evidence-based, culturally sensitive mobile messages are currently in use by 300 organizations in 70 countries around the world.
As MAMA is an innovator in mobile health, which is one of Seidenberg’s top initiatives, Khan will be demonstrating how his work with the alliance can involve you in your future career. For more information, click here.
