Health Executive Education


Health Executive Education

The Health Executive Education program will provide the hospital managers with new skills and introduce new ways of thinking/acting based on experiences from outside Egypt. The Global Development Alliance among USAID/Egypt, the Ministry of Health and Population and the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufactures of America (“PhRMA”), a U.S. private association as representing multinational pharmaceutical companies operating in Egypt, EIPICO Pharmaceuticals, Pharco Corporation, and CDIMA Pharmaceuticals.

The Minister of Health and Population is undertaking the restructuring of Egypt’s health system and considers the improvement of the performance of its public hospitals a cornerstone of this plan. A program concentrating on the development of the managerial capabilities of hospital executives as many of the hospital executives is crucial for the progress of hospitals performance. Many of the hospital executives in Egypt lack the fundamental business skills necessary for any institution manager. Hence a program to strengthen their abilities to develop and practice leadership, decision-making, and financial skills is fundamental for the creation of a pipeline of future leaders. Having a group of executives sharing the same experience, language and management skills in the leading positions of the MOHP institutions ensures a harmony between the different actors involved in the reform of the health sector in Egypt. This, in turn, will lead to a less turbulent and sustainable restructuring process.
