GHLI partners with the Foundation for Professional Development on the Advanced Health Management Program (AHMP). The program focuses on providing health professionals with the management skills necessary to run efficient, effective health care facilities and to have them meet the needs of patients with HIV/AIDS. Program participants identify management challenges at their individual facilities and devise systematic solutions to address these problems.

The program is designed to help participants develop key managerial competency in areas such as financial, operations and project management, human resources, marketing, resource mobilization and monitoring and evaluation. The assignments and group work help students develop the necessary skills to prepare business and monitoring and evaluation plans and human resources tools.

The year-long program offered in South Africa’s nine provinces graduates more than 150 students per year. As one of the largest health leadership programs in the world, AHMP is being adapted for replication in neighboring Swaziland, Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Namibia, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
