Over the past year, the Global Health Council's Research and Analysis Department has highlighted several new initiatives. Our work on the integration of maternal, newborn, child and reproductive health has focused on how service integration can be accomplished. Our work on the intersection of trade and health has focused on producing a booklet and a series of briefs that provide basic information about how trade agreements work and how they related to global health. Our work on cancer has focused on understanding how cancer programming is implemented in developing countries. Finally, the Department has engaged in a university tour across five regions of the United States to reach out to academia and forge new partnerships with the Council.

In addition to examining these issues, we will look ahead to what is coming up next at the Council. One potential avenue for new work includes Global Health Delivery's GHDonline.org Communities: Connecting Practice, Research, and Policy.

Launched in July 2008 by the Global Health Delivery Project, GHDonline (http://www.ghdonline.org) is a Virtual Professional Collaboration platform where global health implementers engage in problem-solving and share information resources to improve the delivery of health care worldwide and in resource-limited settings. GHDonline is structured in communities, each focusing on specific global health challenges from adherence and retention in care to tuberculosis infection control, and moderated by experts.

Thousands of implementers, from clinicians to government employees and researchers, from 1000+ organizations in 130+ countries are collaborating in GHDonline communities, in effect connecting practice, research, and policy. In this presentation, we will demonstrate GHDonline and showcase several in-depth discussions that have yielded results and inspired various stakeholders as a new tool for the Global Health Council to further its mission and work.
