Description
Health systems globally are experiencing dramatic changes and constant restructuring due to services demand and regulatory forces. HSA, HeSMA East Africa and AZV in partnership with Northeastern State University (NSU) have developed a specialized Leadership, Management and Governance (LMG) Program for healthcare professionals. This program is designed to offer practical solutions that not only help participants survive the present healthcare challenges, but enables leaders to thrive in these challenging times. Courses are tailored to reflect applicable circumstances in international markets (locally relevant topics). Courses include opportunities for international participant-exchanges in order to share diverse perspectives.
Objectives
This course explores in detail the process of emphasizing primary and preventive care in order to improve health status of populations and manage the growing cost of traditional acute inpatient care. The PHI processes aim to enhance the individual and cohorts (targeted groups) health status and wellbeing rather than rely solely on the acute care system. PHI combines the benefits of public health and medical interventions with preventive care and socioeconomic interventions in regards to Universal Health Coverage (UHC)
