Communicable Diseases Programs


At program and project level, one has to lead and/or manage control/elimination activities. Thus, it is necessary for those who are working towards disease control to acquire basic skills in leadership and management. While management in a program and project is the same, it is important to note that a program has no time limit apart from meeting targets by month or year while a project is temporary in that it has a defined beginning and end in time with a defined scope and resources. A project is not a routine operation, but a specific set of operations designed to accomplish a singular goal. Project/program management, then, is the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to project/program activities to meet the project/program objectives and targets.
