About: Working Group on Public Health Management and Policy
 
 
The principal goal of the working group is to research and document the degree to which public health (PH) administration, management, and policy knowledge, skills and competencies are imparted by existing public administration (PA) education and training programs in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE), and to develop recommendations with respect to the desirability, feasibility and modalities for a greater integration between PA and PH administration, management and policy education. The secondary goal of the working group is to develop information abut other experiences that would be of relevance in the designing of public administration education and training programs that would respond to the urgent needs of the CEE countries to produce more effective public health care management and policy.

Working Group's research aims to:
  1. Provide a full list of the existing degree-granting academic programmes in public health management and policy in selected CEE countries (the list of countries will be decided in the later stage of the project, the main focus will be on less developed regions, but some accession countries should serve as benchmark), including curricula and all other relevant information.
  2. Provide as comprehensive a list as possible of existing training programmes in public health management and policy in selected countries.
  3. To draw summary remarks on current status of public health management and policy education and training in CEE. Special attention will be given to exploring and examining whether and how public health management and training programmes support necessary developments in the public health sector (both nationally and locally) and its reform.
  4. To draw basic recommendations for future improvements of this field of education, and to see if a greater integration between PA and PH management is relevant.
