People

SCORE benefits from the wisdom, experience, and hard work of many institutions and individuals.

SCORE Secretariat

The role of the Secretariat is to provide leadership and management for the SCORE programs. This includes:

Working with the research community to develop and fund projects that will accomplish SCORE goals, including making final decisions about which investigators to fund, establishing approaches to ensuring collaboration among SCORE researchers, overseeing development of reports on SCORE results and the synthesis of SCORE’s various research projects for a variety of outlets, and working with WHO, program managers, and other organizations to incorporate the evidence from SCORE into policies and programs.
