This electronic resource provides you, as a manager of a health program or health service, with both practical and theoretical information that will help you strengthen and align the building blocks of your health system to achieve results and save lives.
The eHandbook emphasizes the central, critical element of every health system: people. It shows how to build leadership and management skills for yourself and your organization. It also covers management of the specific systems essential to an overall health system—governance, human resources, finances, supply management, health information and associated monitoring and evaluation, and health service delivery. A chapter on planning describes how to formulate a strategic plan for your program or organization.
