Strong Ministries for Strong Health Systems

An overview of the study report: Supporting Ministerial Health Leadership: A strategy for health systems strengthening
Francis Omaswa and Jo Ivey Boufford
January 1, 2010

Abstract

Through detailed interviews with those who know these issues best — the ministers and their stakeholders — this report examines the roles of health ministries, their resource needs, and the challenges they face. Based on the candid and thoughtful input of those interviewed, and the supporting research and consultation activities, this report offers seven action items geared toward building a systematic and sustained program of support for health ministries. Implementation of these proposals can help strengthen health ministries, enhance the leadership capabilities of ministers, and restore their full ability to serve as effective stewards of health resources in the drive to achieve national, regional, and global health objectives.

    Sierra Leone

    Even though I have worked in Sierra Leone in the past, the role of MLI Country Lead has given me the opportunity to build upon these previous experiences and to work closely with members of the Ministry of Health and Sanitation (MOHS), to support the implementation of health policies and reforms that they have prioritized.
