dc.description.abstract Launched NAIROBI, 31st July 2013… the United States International University (USIU) and the Africa Medical and Research Foundation (AMREF) today signed an agreement to launch a Global Executive Master of Business Administration (GEMBA) in Health Leadership & Management at AMREF’s International Training Centre and Headquarters. This Executive MBA targets health professionals in equipping them with skills to effectively manage and lead health systems in a dynamic environment. While African universities offer MBAs for other professionals, this program is the first of its kind in Africa and will provide training that most leaders in health management require but cannot access. A leader in training for Health Systems Strengthening in Africa, AMREF has over the last four years been running a two-year Leadership Development Program. The partnership will enable more leaders across the continent to benefit from AMREF’s experience and expertise in training health professionals, and USIU’s renowned leadership and management training expertise in Africa. AMREF will sponsor students 14 students annually at an approximate cost of 30 Million Kenya Shillings over three years. The course will be facilitators by USIU lecturers. At the end of the one-year course, the 30 health professionals will be equipped with the right skills to manage resources in order to reach poor and underprivileged communities in Africa. They will be able to address some of the problems facing health institutions such as wastage of resources and lack of accountability. en_US
