Managing Transformation in Health Sector: Breaking Barriers to Improve Quality of Health Care Service Delivery
Challenges in transforming established practices in public service delivery in any sector is not new. Every time we go to a sector, we start with the following questions: what tools to apply to reflect right context information, who to work with, how to design process to get maximum results in short period of time and possibly with certain human resources and budgetary limitations?
Through years of field work in different countries and in different public sectors, we have learned how important it is to adapt performance improvement tools and processes to local context as well as to development objectives of USAID and other key sector related international and local actors and stakeholders. This session will share practice based approach of transforming primary health care (PHC) service delivery and changed management practices in Eastern Ukraine health care sector in the context of support to nation-wide health sector reform and adapting international /national models of “Performance Excellence.”
