Experts from recognized public health organizations discussed healthcare competencies

Washington, D.C. January 31, 2013. To achieve effective delivery of healthcare services, it is fundamental to have competent managers and enabling environments for them to lead and manage efficiently.

It is widely recognized that management plays a crucial role in the achievement of health goals and the improvement of the health and wellbeing of populations.  Healthcare delivery services face critical situations and challenges, high among them insufficient number of managers with appropriate competencies, poor support systems and lack of enabling conditions and environments for effective discharge of their responsibilities.  This in turn leads to poor performance and inefficiencies and consequently affects the health situation of the population.

The PAHO Revolving Fund makes influenza vaccines more available to countries

The PAHO Revolving Fund, a strategic mechanism that pools and organizes immunization demand plans and facilitates timely access to quality vaccines at lower prices for the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean, was presented as an innovative model for meeting investment demands and addressing public health needs during the Workshop on Business Modeling for Sustainable Influenza Vaccine Manufacturing held at PAHO January 14-16, 2013.
