Application

Who Should Apply?

The Management Development Institute (MDI) training is designed primarily for high-level managers of public sector entities in sub-Saharan Africa who are dedicated to the improvement of the healthcare of underserved populations in their countries. However, places will also be reserved for leaders of NGOs and other civil society organisations (Faith-Based and Community-Based organisations) that have a similar health-related mission and that have a role in supporting initiatives and implementing healthcare priorities of the public sector.

We are seeking teams or groups of 2-4 individuals from organisations who have related leadership responsibilities for implementing specific national healthcare programs and priorities in their country or region. This format increases the impact of MDI and the program's utility to support national health systems is enhanced.

Depending on the country and sector, candidates might have the following titles:

  • Director
  • Executive Director
  • Project Manager
  • Program Manager
  • Program Coordinator
  • Public Health Coordinator
  • Regional Coordinator
  • Chief Medical Officer
  • Chief Nurse
  • Medical Superintendent
  • Country Coordinator
  • Head of Finance/ Administration

Certification

Participants who attend all the sessions and complete the program successfully will receive a Certificate of Completion from the host institution.
