Human Resources for Health Publishes Article by MSH Authors on Leadership Development
The journal Human Resources for Health recently published an article highlighting a study of the Management Sciences for Health Leadership Development Program in Kenya. Entitled “Strengthening management and leadership practices to increase health service delivery in Kenya: an evidence-based approach,” the article provides evidence that interventions designed to strengthen leadership and management can contribute to positive changes in health service delivery outcomes.
The study was conducted in 2010 through the USAID-funded Leadership, Management and Sustainability Program in Kenya, and looked at the results of the Leadership Development Program in health districts and facilities in six provinces in Kenya. The article’s lead author is La Rue K. Seims, senior monitoring and evaluation officer at MSH, who co-authored the piece with contributions from MSH colleagues as well as collaborators from USAID and Kenya’s Ministry of Health.
Human Resources for Health, published in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO), disseminates research on human resource issues including health workforce policy, the health labor market, and all aspects concerning the management and governance of human resources for health.
