Proceedings: Advancing Country Ownership for Greater Results: A Roundtable Dialogue

The “Advancing Country Ownership for Greater Results: A Roundtable Dialogue” took place on January 12, 2012, and was hosted by the Ministerial Leadership Initiative for Global Health (MLI).

En 2008, pour faire face à ce problème, le Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Ministre de la Santé, a demandé l’appui de l’Initiative du Leadership Ministériel pour la santé dans le monde (ILM) afin de mettre en œuvre le Tableau de bord prospectif (TBP), un outil de planification stratégique et de gestion des performances susceptible d’être appliqué dans tout le secteur de la santé en Éthiopie. Avec l’aide de l’ILM, le MFdS a choisi le Balanced Scorecard Institute (BSCI) pour fournir un soutien technique en vue de la mise en œuvre du TBP.

    Even though I have worked in Sierra Leone in the past, the role of MLI Country Lead has given me the opportunity to build upon these previous experiences and to work closely with members of the Ministry of Health and Sanitation (MOHS), to support the implementation of health policies and reforms that they have prioritized.
