PERFORM2Scale end-of-project webinar

We would like to invite Quality in Universal Health Care TWG members to the PERFORM2Scale end-of-project webinar on 16th March 2022Details and registration here.

 

Lessons from PERFORM2Scale: Experiences of district-level management strengthening at scale will hear from the people directly involved in the project. They include the Head of Norms & Standards at Malawi’s Quality Management Directorate of the Ministry of Health and a member of the Uganda country research team talking about the intervention’s inclusion in the country’s Quality Improvement framework.

 

About PERFORM2Scale

Our team - a consortium of research institutions from Africa and Europe - has been working on the scale-up of a Management Strengthening Intervention among district health management teams (DHMTs) in Ghana, Malawi and Uganda. The intervention had previously been found to strengthen the capacity of district health managers, helping them to develop human resource management and health systems strategies to improve performance. Using an approach based on the ExpandNet model, PERFORM2Scale has explored the potential for the intervention to be scaled-up for greater and longer-lasting impact. Our findings will be revealed in this webinar.

Webinar speakers

The webinar will hear from the people directly involved in PERFORM2Scale:

  • Dr Benedict Bekui, Ghana DHMT member, on the effect of the intervention on DHMT management, workforce performance and service delivery in Ghana. 
  • Dr Justine Namakula from the Uganda country research team at Makerere University on how the management strengthening intervention was integrated into the country's Quality Improvement framework. 
  • Dr Bongani Chikwapulo from the Malawi Ministry of Health on the scale-up strategy in Malawi, how it was facilitated by the Quality Management Directorate of the Ministry of Health and its future in the country. 
  • Tim Martineau and Dr Joanna Raven from Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine on the research background, methodology and key findings.
  • The session will be chaired by Dr Maryse Kokfrom KIT Royal Tropical Institute

 

Join us at 12-13:30 UTC on Wednesday 16th March - Details and registration here.

 

This project was funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 Framework Programme.
