Leaders in Health

The Leaders in Health (LIH) e-learning modules were developed for the Namibian Ministry of Health and Social Services (MOHSS) as part of an innovative course developed in collaboration with I-TECH for their employees nationwide.

LIH is a blended learning course that combines face-to-face training with self-paced online learning modules that minimize time away from the work site. Participants attend an initial three day session led by the Namibia Ministry of Health and Human Services (MOHSS) senior managers in Phase 1; take the modules and check in with their mentors through the nation-wide digital video conferencing system in Phase 2; and meet in person again for Phase 3 and graduation.

The MOHSS goal for this course is to train at least 350 employees by April 2014 with 70 hours of skill building on key management and leadership topics, including ethics, policy and advocacy, communication, human resource management, team building, and health service systems thinking.
