Three broad themes have

Three broad themes have beenidentified as a base upon which topursue this review:1. Human flourishing, wellnessand health2. The ministry of the church amidstthe communities it serves3. The role of faith in the governanceand deliveryof health servicesA recent paper by the Church of EnglandMission and Public Affairs Councilexpresses this breadth of interestwell in its response to a governmentwhite paper on health reform:‘The Church of England understandshealth and wellbeing to encompassall areas of individual and corporatelife: physical, mental, spiritual,psychological and social. Theprovision of health care ought toaddress each of these areas in anintegrated manner, not dealing withany in isolation from the rest’.AHN believes that this review andconference will be of interest to thewider communion, and that muchof the thinking about the role of thechurch in modern health systems andin the wider conditions for well beingwill be universally relevant. There isample opportunity for members ofAHN to get involved in this review.For further information, please contactnetwork coordinator, Paul Holley.Leadership developmentwith AHNAHN aspires to provide leaders responsiblefor Anglican health missionwith increased opportunity for professionaldevelopment. The churchemploys managers for its healthfacilities and its community basedhealth programmes; it appoints diocesanand provincial coordinators tooversee the operation of its networkof health activities. However, thereare few opportunities for people inthese positions of responsibility toreflect with others on the nature ofleadership in the faith based healthenvironment. AHN is proposing twoinitiatives to help develop the competenciesof these leaders:Linkedin peer support groupLinkedin is a professional networkingwebsite that is currently expandingat a rapid pace. It offers an open environmentin which members can linkwith other professionals. The site supportsgroups that are established forspecific purposes. AHN coordinator,Paul Holley has established a groupcalled ‘Anglican Health Leaders’ inwhich members can begin to interactand share their aspirations and ideas.As the needs and opportunities beginto emerge, then the group can beginto look for solutions together. If youare interested in joining the group,then you will need to register withLinkedin through the following link:http://www.linkedin.com/Once you have become a member,you can search the groups section for‘Anglican Health Leaders’. As this iscurrently a closed group, registrationfor this group will involve a requestto Paul for authorization.AHN is made effective by moderncommunications. This Linkedin groupprovides an opportunity for leadersfrom different settings to learn fromone another and to collaborate toimplement new initiatives.Anglican MPH on the horizonMost low to middle income countriescurrently have to cope with awide range of health problems thatinterfere with their future economicdevelopment. Public health is a majorpriority, especially the spread ofAIDS, tuberculosis and common infectiousdiseases, as well as the emergenceof chronic disease epidemics.A trained workforce of health professionalsis essential, but local universitiesare vastly oversubscribed forface to face courses. In addition, feesfor overseas universities, includinge-learning distance programmes, arehigher than can be afforded by mostpotential students in these countries.Peoples-uni is helping to build PublicHealth capacity using Internet-basede-learning, which has the exciting potentialto deliver high quality learningresources anytime and anywhere,and although Internet access is byno means universal it is improvingquickly.The course has now run for threesemesters, with more than 100 studentseach time. Students have comefrom 24 countries, and volunteertutors and support groups from 12countries – so it has an internationalfaculty and student body. The courseis designed primarily to ‘train thetrainers’ so assumes degree level attainmentfor entrants. Peoples-Uni isin the process of negotiating accreditationfor a Masters of Public Healthqualification.AHN is in discussion with Peoples-unito establish a stream for Anglicanhealth coordinators and hospitalclinicians that wish to improve theirleadership in public health programming.In the meantime, the coursesremain open for anyone to apply.
