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). Country ownership is viewed as an important step towards improving aid effectiveness for global health. Yet, country ownership is a debated issue, particularly what it means in practical terms to donors, development partners, civil society, and country governments.

Leadership and Management

A broken health system is a silent killer. People get sicker and die in disproportionate numbers just as they do during an epidemic. Yet the culprit is not lack of knowledge. Nor is it always a shortage of funds. Technically and medically, we know what to do to reduce illness and save lives. But what is sorely amiss is the dearth of knowledge and skill to manage these very complicated health systems. Dr. William H. Foege sums up the issue as "global health waits expectantly for management to match its science."

    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.
