NYAM President Dr. Boufford and Dr. Francis Omaswa Co-Author New Volume on Strengthening Ministries of Health

 
 L-R: Dr. Ariel Pablos-Mendez, Assistant Administrator for Global Health of USAID; NYAM President Dr. Jo Ivey Boufford; Dr. Pinkie Manamolela, Honorable Minister of Health of Lesotho; Dr. Francis Omaswa, Executive Director of ACHEST and NYAM Fellow; and Dr. Jonathan Quick, President and Chief Executive Officer of Management Sciences for Health.


NYAM President Jo Ivey Boufford, MD and Francis Omaswa, MD, Executive Director of The African Center for Global Health and Social Transformation (ACHEST) in Uganda, recently co-authored the second volume in a series on strengthening Ministries of Health globally.

The new volume, Handbook for Ministers of Health, follows Dr. Omaswa and Dr. Boufford’s earlier work entitled Strong Ministries for Strong Health Systems, which called for a campaign to strengthen ministers and ministries of health and identified specific action steps. The Handbook includes learning from implementation of several of these recommendations by Dr. Omaswa and his team in the East African region. It provides new ministers with a guide to the landscape they will face and tips on navigating their complex responsibilities both with their countries and in the international organizations so crucial to health policy.

The launch for the monograph took place at a conference on leadership and governance during the World Health Organization’s World Health Assembly held on May 19-24, 2014 in Geneva, Switzerland.
