Leadership and Management in Health Certificate Course
In December 2021, thirteen NTD Program Managers completed a certificate course in Leadership and Management in Health. During the 11-week online course offered by the University of Washington (United States), Program Managers learned about topics such as effective communication, project management, financial management, team building, conflict management, and accountability. This course provided Program Managers with tangible tools and techniques to lead large teams implementing complex interventions in the pursuit of NTD control or elimination. A participating Program Manager said,
This course has improved my personal development by reminding me that no one was born a leader and teaching me the right skills to become a good leader on top of being a great manager.
