This presentation will focus on U.S. government engagement in Myanmar as an example of Global Health Diplomacy.  Specifically, this presentation will use the case study of US-Myanmar relations to describe a Theory of Practice Change approach as one way to conceptualize GHD practice and the potential impacts that could also depict its complexity and identify relationships and pathways for measuring success. I will also discuss both academic research as well as how we use this engagement as a teaching tool for MPH students.
