STRATEGY for ENHANCING LEADERSHIP I - What is GIS

STRATEGY for ENHANCING LEADERSHIP

IN PRIMARY HEALTH CARE


Have FAITH in our own people

Needs paradigm shift

Needs overcoming resistance to change


Strategic Innovation

“Community-based initiative”

A need to go for a phrase that can be shared

by all

Setting a clear goal is the key.

This goal reflects a paradigm shift of health

authorities (that people themselves could be

relied upon).


Managerial Innovation

Give more importance to social measure.

Integrate technical with social measure.

A process innovation that enables people to

take actions in health matters.

- Prevention.

-Promotion.

-Treatment

- Rehabilitation

- Health security.

Assign roles of various players accordingly.

Enhancing leadership means people’s leadership


People’s Expected roles determine

1 Strategies of all stakeholders.

2 Critical processes to be applied.

3 Learning and development of human

resources.

4 Information system development.

5 Organization’s characteristics and culture.


Strategy must be managed

A need to put all diverse aspects of

development into order.

Clear destination statements as to where we

shall go from here (by what year?)

What are the various strategic objectives ?

Who is going to do what, when, where ?

To answer these questions

About Community Health Workers

CHWs is not the only answer to PHC.

They are a means, not an end.

Their work should be “developmentoriented”

as against “service-oriented”.


About government sectors

Inputs, including monetary, must be

balanced between those that go to develop the

community and those that are used within

the sectors.

It is hypocritical to talk about empowering

people but do otherwise.

PHC work can be through other partners as

much as what can be done by ourselves.


Looking Ahead

Time may be right to crystallize experiences

from community-based initiative programs

and develop guidelines and

recommendations.

Emphasis may be put upon innovation

because the whole program is in fact an

innovation of the strategy and management

of primary health care.


clear destinations in terms of people’s

capability and role may be put forward for

countries in the region to reach within a

given time frame (e.g.3-5 years according to

the Millennium Development Goals)


Soul-searching

Find for ourselves if we have faith in the

people and what we are going to do for them.

Have courage to hold on to our belief.
