AU launches public health leadership programme, and more news
The African Union launched a programme to support leadership in public health on 25 May. The Kofi Annan Global Health Leadership Programme, named after the late United Nations secretary-general, will have three arms: a Public Health Leadership Fellow Programme to train public health leaders, a Public Health Scholar Programme to place public health experts in ministries and other agenda-setting institutions on the continent; and a Virtual Leadership Academy to encourage debate and lesson-sharing across Africa. "Africa is a resilient continent, but we need stronger health systems that can support communities to become more resilient,” said John Nkengasong, director of the Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, which will manage the programme.
