Governance Training (Archived)
Health governance is a platform that allows and encourages meaningful community participation in health service delivery matters enabling the discussion and formulation of solutions, by both health management and the community, at different levels of the health system.
Training is intended to improve the functioning of governance structures, to define their roles and responsibilities, and to improve communication between such structures and their management teams.
As HST has a long track record in providing training to governance structures they were contracted to conduct training for clinic committees in Limpopo. Training was conducted in February and March 2009 in all Limpopo Districts where 545 clinic committee members were trained. The outcome of the training has been acknowledged as having been successful, with HST receiving feedback that clinic committee members are now meaningfully participating in clinic governance issues.
