Deadline (For Western Africa): 13 July 2018

Applications are open for the Management Development Program which is designed to enhance the leadership and management skills of program managers and leaders of sub-Saharan organisations, governmental and non-governmental, that are devoted to delivering health care services to underserved populations.

The MDI program was designed by world-class management faculty from the Anderson School of Management at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) and by leaders of Amref Health Africa to specifically assist African ministries of health in implementing their particular national health priorities.

The primary goal of the MDI is to assist African ministries of health in implementing their particular national health priorities and improving the effectiveness of their health systems by enhancing the leadership and management skills and practices of program managers and leaders of organisations that are devoted to delivering healthcare services to underserved populations.

Eligibility Criteria

  • The Management Development Institute is designed primarily for high-level managers of public sector entities in sub-Saharan Africa who are dedicated to the improvement of the healthcare of underserved populations in their countries.
