Management Training

Health system weaknesses are a major impediment to achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and other health targets. Globally, health systems strengthening has been recognised as critical for improvement of health services and subsequently health outcomes. This training curriculum seeks to provide both the trainers and trainees with a comprehensive approach to health system strengthening. Upon implementation, this training is expected to produce a critical mass of policy makers and practitioners who understand the tenets and principles of health systems and will contribute to overall health systems strengthening to improvement of health outcomes across Africa.

AfroPHC is running the online Leadership, Management and Governance for Health System Strengthening (LMG-HSS) Course to our members in a partnership with AHLMN in ten modules over 10 months in 2022. Each module is assessed separately. AfroPHC will implement a monthly meeting and a Google Group as a discussion group per module where subject experts and e-mentors can share relevant material and answer questions.
