    China   (2009)
    Starting in 2009, this program was part of a five-year investment to provide underserved women around the world with a business and management education. GHLI partnered with Tsinghua School of Economics and Management to train female health care administrators in China by offering practical field experience and classroom work to women across the health delivery system, with a focus on those serving rural and underserved urban communities. The program trained more than 500 administrators and was the first in China between two internationally renowned universities to target female health care administrators from secondary and county level hospitals, community health centers and local health bureaus throughout the country.
  • Liberia, Health Management Delivery Program
    Liberia   (2007 - 2009)
    GHLI partnered with the Mother Patern College of Health Sciences, the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare (MoHSW) and the Clinton Health Access Initiative as part of the Health Management Delivery Program to establish a certificate course and mentorship program that provides health care professionals with the leadership skills and problem solving tools necessary to implement the Liberian National Health Plan. This work culminated in the development of the Health Management Toolkit for health facility managers across the country and the Drug Dispenser Certification Workbook and training program to promote effective pharmacy management and safe dispensing practices. This program continues through Mother Patern College.
