One recommendation participants from July 2010's leadership training proposed to Senegal's Health Minister Fada was to provide another session of leadership training to additional high-level staff within the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MOHP). This recommendation was put into action in the first week of May with a new training. Using the same curriculum as the previous training, this session included Minister Fada's advisors, managers and program leaders at the central level as well as leaders at the regional and district level. MOHP staff identified increasing leadership capacity as an essential skill necessary to improve performance throughout the health system and operationalize the implementation of the National Health Development Plan 2009-2018 (PNDS-II).
