Leadership and Management

Description

Public health leaders are workers who can work with emotional intelligence, interpersonal skills and the ability to inspire and empower, in addition to having the ability to manage time, financial and human resources and carry out missions. In the field of global health, it is common to find health workers who have been promoted to supervisory positions due to their technical knowledge but with little training in leadership and management.

This is especially seen in countries where decentralization has taken place and management responsibilities have been transferred in bulk. This results in work being done both ineffectively and inefficiently due to a lack of required skills. It also results in workplaces that are full of confusion and dissatisfaction.

At the root, most of the world’s pressing health issues can be alleviated by improved management practices related to coverage, motivation, and competence. In an attempt to build the regional capacity in health development, the training programs in Foundations in Leadership and Management for Public Health, and the courses it encompasses, are essential to better educate health professionals.
