AMP Health and Capacity Building



so tell us a little bit about what amp health is doing what the vision for it is and what you're learning so far yeah I know thanks very much and it's an honor to be on this stage with all of you and an honor to work with Peggy and the team here on amp Oh a lot of the amp health team is here raise your hands so that very exciting so they've traveled a long way from from Africa to be here with us this week it is hugely exciting just to pick up on what what Victor and Don yes we're saying I mean we we have caused for lots of optimism I mean the technological advances that have coming we expect in the future are enormous ly important at the same time I don't think that we'll take full advantage of the potential of those investments of that innovation unless we also invest in the people who are responsible for making sure that those innovations reach everybody otherwise you know we can have the best Diagnostics the best drugs the best vaccines the best bed nets but if we don't have skilled leaders and managers running those programs and making sure that those commodities get to people I just think we're not we're not taking advantage of what we're investing in so you know I've I've spent most of my life on the technical side but I've been increasingly struck that we haven't invested in leadership and management and amp health is at its heart a leadership and management effort it's a collaboration between amp health and the government's with whom we work it brings the expertise of the private sector in leadership and management training with our partner the African management initiative hi Robi and we work with whole teams and I think that's one of the secret things we focus not just on an individual who we pluck out and send to a leadership training and send back we actually take a management partner a mid-career professional and embed them in a Ministry of Health Team the most important thing is that there's demand the Ministry of Health requests that they want support for a team to develop those leadership and management skills and it is both leadership and management you hear a lot about leadership management gets forgotten sometimes but you heard hear people talking about management and both are really important and we work together to create a multi-year curriculum that covers all of the aspects of leadership and management that you would expect in any private sector endeavor and we should expect the same degree of excellence in the public sector so it really is very exciting and we really try and make sure that everyone in the team feels their responsibility as a leader and as a manager
