Dear Colleagues, 

I am excited to share that the Boost Community, in partnership with the Geneva Learning Foundation (TGLF) and Adaptive Change Advisors (ACA), is accepting applications for the first cohort of the Scholar Level 1 Certification Course on Adaptive Leadership. This six-week course, which is open to all immunization professionals involved with managing or implementing immunization programs at the national and sub-national levels, will teach you how to embrace your leadership potential and effect consequential change in your system. During the course, participants will learn to: diagnose the system they are operating within; distinguish and define technical and adaptive problems; and develop an action plan to effect change in their system. Drawing on Scholar’s proven package of interventions used since 2016 by immunization teams in 90 countries and the 'Adaptive Leadership' approach developed at Harvard University, the course will cover foundational frameworks and tools such as faction mapping and distinguishing leadership from authority. 

 

Application Deadline: April 26, 2020

You can make a difference.
If you wait for those with authority to lead, you may wait a long time.
Leadership is about everyday change that adds up to consequential change.
Adaptive leadership is about pushing the boundaries to make a difference.

Join JSI and Sonder Design Collective for a third in a series of mini 30-minute webinars sharing their initial findings from the Vx Data Insights research in Kenya. This Human-Centered Design study is a joint effort between the two organizations and the Ministry of Health in Kenya, aimed at understanding the challenges around collecting and using data for decision-making in delivering immunization services. 

In this webinar, the team will take you through their learnings about the //medium.com/@vxdel/policy-vs-practice-two-modes-that-reflect-decision-making-in-the-kenyan-health-system-5561b32b261b" target="_blank" rel="noopener" style="box-sizing: border-box; background-color: transparent; color: rgb(108, 206, 179); text-decoration: none; transition: all 0.3s ease 0s; cursor: pointer; font-size: 14px !important; overflow-wrap: break-word;">two modes of decision-making in the Kenyan health system. Through key insights and illustrative examples, they will describe the 2 decision-making modes used for decision making: extensive planning and budgeting activities that closely follow policy versus the reactive, rapid and informal nature of how decisions are often made on the ground to respond to urgent and unmet needs . For more information about the work, you can download the initial Kenya findings report.

La pandémie actuelle du Covid-19 ébranle les systèmes de santé des pays à revenu faible et moyen (PRFM) et met leur personnel à risque. Le travail des personnels de santé clinique, qui traitent quotidiennement les patients dans les hôpitaux et les cliniques du monde entier, dépend des produits que le personnel de la chaîne d'approvisionnement en santé peut lui fournir. Sous-estimé à tort, ce dernier est fondamental pour assurer la disponibilité des produits et garantir la continuité des services de soins.

De nombreux webinaires focalisés sur la chaîne d'approvisionnement, y compris dans le domaine de la santé, ont été organisés par des organisations et institutions publiques et privées depuis l'épidémie. Cependant, la plupart de ces événements en ligne sont dispensés en anglais, ce qui limite l'accès à de précieuses ressources et informations pour la communauté francophone.

Rejoignez-nous pour un webinaire co-organisé par SAPICS et People that Deliver qui réunira des professionnels de la chaîne d'approvisionnement en santé des secteurs public et privé pour partager des idées et des expériences sur la façon dont la pandémie COVID-19 a affecté les opérations de leur chaîne d'approvisionnement. Les présentatrices mettront l’accent sur les besoins et bonnes pratiques du personnel de la chaîne d'approvisionnement de santé. Elles discuteront également de la façon dont leurs organisations soutiennent les travailleurs pour veiller à ce qu’ils soient protégés et soutenus, en prenant en considération le contexte des pays francophones en Afrique sub-saharienne.

Présentatrices confirmées:

Fernanda Debellian, Directeur régional, amérique centrale et du sud
Association pour la Gestion des Chaînes d’Approvisionnement (ASCM)

Dr. Sokhna Guaye, Chef de service Gestion des Stocks /Chaîne de froid
Pharmacie National d’Approvisionnement, Sénégal

Aline Mukerabirori, Senior Supply Chain Advisor
Management Sciences for Health, IMPACT Program
