An efficient secretary for a well-functioning district office
Setting up the District Health System has seen a large emphasis placed on the establishment of district management teams (DMT) and on the provision of management training. However, just as in any company or business, managers require support and assistance. One aspect of this is secretarial support and assistance. If the District Management Team can be considered as the engine for the delivery of health care, secretarial and clerical support services are the oil that lubricates the engine.
This Kwik Skwiz describes the experience from an ISDS site where secretarial support to the DMT was identified as an important need. It then discusses the potential role of a person or persons in the District Office who can provide this support.
