43 Frontline Health Workers Complete Management Course

43 Frontline Health Workers Complete Management Course

The seventh cohort of our certificate course in health services management has graduated with counsel to the trainees to make use of the learned skills in order to improve service delivery.

While officiating at the pass out at the weekend, the Kibuku District Health Officer Dr. Ahmed Bumba said he believes in people using the acquired knowledge before adding more. “A certificate today, work for some time, diploma next and work for a while before aiming for the next qualification. And I would like to urge you as managers to serve diligently.”

Dr Bumba said he has been challenging health workers from his district who have attended the course to demonstrate that they benefited from this course by doing some things differently from the way they used to.

“I have pushed many in-charges to do one or two things differently; whether it means maintaining and arrival book, doing an analysis of the book and acting on the findings of the analysis or making sure that the duty roaster is well maintained or making sure the drug orders are on time or doing performance monitoring of the workers,” he added.

Speaking on the same occasion, Prof. Freddie Ssengooba, the HPPM head of department said the course adds value to frontline health workers who hardly get management training during their training.

“Having knowledge on budgets, accountability, reports of service delivery and many other functions are very important especially at a time when health workers are under attack from all corners,” said the professor, imploring the trainees to make use of the acquired skills to improve themselves and their places of work.

Thirty of the 43 successful candidates in the seventh cohort were sponsored by MakSPH’s Maternal and Neonatal Implementation for Equitable Systems (MANIFEST) study, which aims at improving maternal and newborn indicators in the districts of Kamuli, Kibuku and Pallisa.

MANIFEST also sponsored 30 health workers in the 6th cohort, ten from each of the three districts, and the same number is being sponsored in the 8th cohort which will come to a cumulative number of 90.
