Healthstyles co-producer and host Barbara Glickstein opens this week’s show with an interview with Sara Jerving a Kaiser Family Foundation Global Health Reporting Fellow for the GlobalPost. Jerving published a piece looking at maternal and child healthcare in South Africa that was part of the publication’s special report called ‘Branding Health.’ The series, which launched this week, sent reporters to four locations in Africa to examine the effectiveness of public-private partnerships in the health sector.
