The Union’s International Management Development Programme (IMDP) was created to aid countries with the difficult task of operating a national health programme by training health professionals in management education. The IMDP’s mission is to develop a community of leaders and innovators in public health who improve the quality of services provided to the public through well-managed national health programmes.
The IMDP’s curriculum addresses key issues such as:
-Developing budgets for national health programmes and international donors
-Organising and training health staff across various regions and provinces
-Coordinating medicines and supplies
-Motivating overworked staff
-Creating communications plans to disseminate important health messages
-Adhering to strategies that boost detection rates
