The importance of better management and governance of the health sector in India has vastly increased for several reasons.

First, India’s vision of Viksit Bharat by the end of Amrit Kaal in 2047 has a healthy population as one its core elements.

Second, it is only recently that the health sector is being viewed as a professional rather than a welfare activity. There are therefore many legacy issues to be addressed while meeting new challenges of transitioning from communicable to lifestyle disease burden.

Third, The Covid-19 Pandemic, which India managed relatively successfully, underlines that the poorly managed health sector is an economic and national security risk. Technology management in the health sector is thus a key issue to be managed

Why this Program?

The above suggests that literacy about health management and governance in India must become more widespread among relevant faculties, policymakers, and health sector administrators, relevant faculty and undergraduate and postgraduate students and researchers, and for those involved in public policies, legislative and judicial wings, and political parties.  A diverse set of professionals could thus benefit from the proposed four-day Certificate Program on Health Sector Management and Governance : An Indian perspective, organized by IMPRI  (Impact and Policy Research Institute), New Delhi.

This Certificate Program is structured to provide relevant analytical principles and frameworks relevant to the health sector in India, as well as discuss current health initiatives and future challenges in India’s health sector. High quality resource persons, from  academic, policy and practitioners domains will be delivering this program.

Engaging with experts and peers from around the world, participants can expect to gain valuable insights and perspectives on various aspects of health policy and governance. From analyzing policy frameworks to understanding the role of stakeholders and exploring innovative approaches, the program covers a wide range of topics essential for effective health governance. Furthermore, the interactive nature of the online platform allows for meaningful discussions, knowledge sharing, and networking opportunities, fostering collaboration and exchange of ideas among participants.

By participating in this program, individuals stand to benefit in numerous ways. Not only will they acquire new knowledge and skills to address complex health challenges, but they will also enhance their professional credentials with a certificate from a reputable institution like IMPRI. Additionally, the flexible online format eliminates the constraints of geographical location and travel, making it accessible to participants from diverse backgrounds and regions. Ultimately, the program empowers participants to contribute meaningfully to shaping health policies and governance frameworks, both nationally and internationally, for the betterment of public health outcomes globally.
