Strategic Health planning header


Health issues are the most widely covered by the MDGs with three dedicated to health issues alone. With growing populations and restricted budgets, it is increasingly important to know how to plan and organise health systems at any scale, and the strategic importance of negotiation and coordination with the many bodies responsible for health systems, particularly in the developing world.

Course Overview

Examine the international, national and local pressures on health systems, the role of civil society in provision and the design of strategies to develop efficient, affordable and equitable health structures.

Health systems are complex, involving multiple inputs from different policy scales, and having consequent feedback loops into their own existence. Thus, health planning demands wide-ranging knowledge and skills in management, leadership and strategy.

Through discussions with some of the leading and most innovative actors in this field, participants will analyse holistic conceptions of health systems and policies, and build their own capacity in strategic health planning. In particular, participants will develop skills which will facilitate improvements in the organisational capacity of their own health systems, whatever the scale.

This is a specialist training course leading to a Level 7 Chartered Management Institute (CMI) Certificate in Management and Leadership. Upon completion of this week-long course and subsequent written tasks, the successful candidate will be awarded a Level 7 CMI certificate in Management & Leadership showing the CMI units achieved. The CMI is the only chartered professional body in the UK dedicated to promoting the highest standards in management and leadership excellence. The professional qualifications offered by the Institute are internationally recognised and sought after.
