Webinar: ‘Public Health Actions for Universal Health Coverage in Developing Countries’ organized by IIHMR University on February 20, 2021.

Learn from noted experts as they speak at the webinar on ‘Public Health Actions for Universal Health Coverage in Developing Countries’ organized by IIHMR University on February 20, 2021.
Panelists Dr. SD Gupta, Chairperson, IIHMR University, Dr. Ferozuddin Feroz, Former Health Minister of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, Consultant for the World Bank, USAID, and DFID, and Founder of the Governance Institute – Afghanistan, and Dr. Indu Bhushan (IAS), Former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Ayushman Bharat – Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (AB - PMJAY) and the National Health Authority (NHA), Government of India, will deliberate on where India stands in terms of achieving Universal Health Coverage. The webinar will be moderated by Dr. DK Mangal, Professor and Dean (Research), Advisor, SD Gupta School of Public Health, IIHMR University.

There are three dimensions to UHC: population coverage, services coverage, and financial risk protection. The goal is to make available to 100% of the population a broad-enough range of essential health services that cover 100% of their healthcare needs and ensure that 100% of the population can receive these services without incurring health expenditure that is more than 10% of the monthly household expenditure. Advocacy is being made for the Indian Public Health Act with a mandate to protect and promote the health of people as a fundamental right to health and health care; and establishing an autonomous ‘Public Health Commission’ to implement the provisions of the Act.

8 Reasons Why Executive Management Programmes Are Advantegous

 Executive Management Programmes are part-time in nature and are usually of between 12 and 24 months length, depending on the coverage. The programmes are targeted at students with extensive work experience. The instruction is a mix of online and on-campus lectures and may include experiential and project work as well.

There are several advantages in the Executive Management Programme structure:

Focused learning: 

Executive programmes usually offer tailored coverage for specific objectives since students have extensive experience, which gives them a clear idea about what they want out of a course. This helps to make the curriculum relevant to those objectives.

Learn and earn:

Experienced executives have a large opportunity cost to pay in addition to the course fee if they take up a full-time programme. The structure of the executive programmes is such that most instruction takes place on weekends and the on-campus portion is kept to a minimum. This means that students can continue to earn while learning.

Opportunity for Applied Learning:

Since students are studying while working, they have a unique opportunity of being able to immediately apply management concepts in their roles. Not only does this help them understand academic concepts better but it also enhances their value in their workplace.

Rich peer Learning Opportunities:

The cohort of an executive programme is itself a source of learning since students come from reputed organisations with rich work experience of their own.

Networking:

Focused and experienced students can put to use the peer group interactions for furthering their careers by expanding their professional networks.

Soft Skills Training:

Beyond technical skills, which students already possess through their job roles, the executive programmes focus on relevant soft skills like communication, team work, presentations, etc. These are essential skills in any modern organisation today.

Positioning for Leadership:

Business leaders are expected to be generalists who can analyse business issues from multiple perspectives – financial, operational, human, commercial, etc. The executive programmes specifically focus on building strategic thinking, team work, leadership skills, and business acumenthrough established frameworks, all of which are essential for a business leader.

Facilitating Career Shifts:

For students aspiring for a change in industry or domain, executive programmes offer the needed credentials. Completion of the programme makes it much easier to make a lateral shift into a new area.

 

At IIHMR University, we offer two executive programmes for management aspirants:

·         MBA (Executive) in Leadership and Strategy

2-year programme, organized in four executive academic semesters of 15-18 weeks.

·         Advanced Management Programme in Healthcare Leadership (AMP-HL)

15-month programme focused on the healthcare sector, organized in seven modules with the flexibility to transfer course credits to MBA (Executive) in Leadership and Strategy

 

IIHMR Advantages:

·   IIHMR University, Jaipur has rich experience in the healthcare sector and in developing managerial talent of nearly 3 decades.

·   Our extensive relationships with a corporate network that has some of India’s best-known corporates helps students gain instant recognition on course completion.

·   The rich relationships with international universities and globally respected experts in healthcare and management helps us design a curriculum that is cutting-edge, industry-relevant, and world-class

·         IIHMR University's philosophy of research-driven knowledge, co-creation, and learning benefits executive programme participants in expanding both breadth and depth of their learning. This is achieved by learning from practitioner faculty with deep research experience.

Afghanistan’s association with IIHMR University goes a long way as it has been involved in strengthening the healthcare systems while the country was under great duress. IIHMR University has been offering trainings our public healthcare professionals through their executive education which has proved to be beneficial to the entire public health sector.”

Expressing his gratitude towards his Excellency Mr. Tahir Qadri, Dr. PR Sodani mentioned that IIHMR University worked very closely with Afghanistan for capacity building and training of healthcare workers for 9 years.

Dr. PR Sodani, President, IIHMR University said, “We have always worked very closely with the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH), Afghanistan for strengthening health systems and have been contributing since years together. IIHMR University has collaborated with the Kandahar University, Afghanistan in the year 2018. For about 10 years IIHMR University in collaboration with the Johns Hopkins University USA, worked very closely in Afghanistan with MoPH for strengthening health systems. IIHMR University established the first survey to estimate the IMR of Afghanistan. The University takes pride in mentioning that it has developed and designed executive programs for Public Health professionals from Afghanistan like Leadership and Strategic Management, Health Sector Reforms, Economic Evaluation, Health Economics and Financing. Every year we receive a lot of requests from the MoPH, Afghanistan and our relations have been strengthened as we have been engaged in developing the young and dynamic minds of the country.”

IIHMR University has been involved in extensive research which has been useful in strengthening the health systems of Afghanistan. The University sees tremendous scope and opportunities which can be explored between Afghanistan and India to go further and strengthen the health and education sector. IIHMR University recently launched the SD Gupta School of Public Health to help train public healthcare professionals and urges the professionals from Afghanistan to enroll for this program.
