The Quito Project2012
The Quito Project’s mission is to collaborate with local partners in developing evidence-based solutions that support and build capacity in the health, education, and social sectors. The Quito Project’s staff work alongside public health and clinical professionals in Quito, drawing on existing evidence to develop public health interventions targeted to specific problems. Student intern Brett Trzcinski worked on Proyecto Telesalud, a mobile device intervention that seeks to improve followup care for new mothers and their babies. His role was to conduct randomized control trials, help enroll patients in the study, and develop a cost/benefit analysis for the intervention.
