Want to find out more about our work in Uganda?

Monday, 24 Aug 2015

On Friday our Uganda team presented findings from the project to an audience of stakeholders in Kampala. Main messages from the research included that:

  • The management strengthening approach appears to be acceptable, effective and viable at district level.
  • There is now a critical mass in the District Health Management Teams with improved problem solving and planning skills and a better understanding of workforce performance problems and appropriate strategies. This momentum needs to be sustained.
  • Some improvements can be made without extra resources. With more resources even greater things could be achieved.
  • Managers have proved that they can be very resourceful when implementing their own plans. They could be encouraged to be more “entrepreneurial”.
  • Action research can be a powerful tool for management strengthening. Options for capitalizing on the investment made by the PERFORM are needed.

If you want to read more, but you are short on time, we have a PowerPoint presentation that might be helpful.
