A Programme Focusing on Practical Aspects
This intensive course aims at introducing the basic principles of strategic programme and project management. It also focuses on practical aspects of the planning and implementation process, using the techniques of a simulation exercise and computer based support.
The course is subdivided into two parts.
By the end of the first part participants will be able to critically reflect concepts of priority setting, financing and planning regarding the development of health systems. In addition, they will be able to put into practice principles of management that can be applied to district health services.
In the second part, participants are working in small groups and take the roles of a project design mission. Using the Logical Framework Approach and other tools they will go through all steps of such a planning process and will write a project proposal document. The group work is supervised by experienced facilitators.
