Thursday, September 14, 2006 to Friday, September 15, 2006

This workshop was convened by the National Academies of Science, Committee on Population, and was chaired by Robert Wallace of the University of Iowa. The goal of the workshop was to consider specific, low-cost interventions drawing on the lessons of demography, public health, economics, community medicine, and other fields. The interdisciplinary approach is reflected in the invited presentations.
