NCDs health systems strenghtening meeting 17-18 November 2014 s

Written by Vicki.

PHANGO, as part of the SA NCD Alliance, is hosting a health systems strengthening (HSS) workshop in relation to NCDs.
Dates: 17-18 November 2014 in Gauteng (1 ˝ days)

PHANGO members are invited to send one representative per organisation to attend. PHANGO offers bursaries to its members on application.

Key stakeholders, including the government sector, are set to participate. We urge to register early and nominate a representative.

Areas to be addressed are:

  • Integration of NCDs interventions and services into existing heath platforms/services. E.g.: HIV/AIDS, reproductive health and maternal and child health
  • Patient empowerment See the review on person centre care and self-management.
    How do we involved the patient in the development of health services?
    How can NCDs patients and NGOs be better involved to contribute towards a patient-centred health system?
  • Multisectoral collaboration
    Are there examples of successful public/private partnerships?
    How can the different sectors work together on HSS for NCDs?

We are particularly keen to find out how NCDs fits into the National Department of Health’s plans for the as yet unpublished but much vaunted Integrated Chronic Disease Management Model.

Maisha Hutton of the Health Caribbean Coalition, suggests these frameworks looking at HSS:
