Published by: 
The Open University

In the past decades, health governance has become multi-layered as the combined result of decentralisation, regional integration and the emergence of new actors nationally and internationally. Whereas this has – in principle – enhanced the installed capacity for health response worldwide, this complexity also poses serious challenges for health governance and policy-making. This paper focuses on one of these challenges, namely the organisation of statistical information flows at and between governance levels, and the emerging role that regional organisations play therein.

Transforming the health system, one kunjani at a time

Sarah Davids believes that the use of a simple word, “kunjani”, has the power to transform lives.

Kunjani means “how are you” in the Nguni languages, which are widely spoken in southern Africa.  

As the manager of HST’s Wellness for Effective Leadership Programme (WEL), Davids says spending a few minutes in the morning to “check in” with your colleagues, can change the way in which they work.

WEL founder, Dr Tim Wilson, says it was developed after 140 babies died of diarrhoea and dehydration in a three month period, and all in the same District.
