Improving Public Health Management for Action (IMPACT) Program Fellow Symposium

Organised by: IMPACT Program, Division of Global Health Protection, Center for Global Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention


The Improving Public Health Management for Action (IMPACT) Program is an innovative management and leadership training program focused on building capacity in government public health systems.  IMPACT fellows spend 75% of their time in field assignments, building competence directly through the application of skills including program planning and management, evaluation, budget and financial management, and community engagement and assessment.

On an annual basis, the IMPACT Fellowship Program brings together its fellows to present on various field projects they have been completing in their countries at national and sub-national levels in a public health management symposium. The IMPACT Kenya program is pleased to hold this year’s symposium within the African Health Agenda International Conference, providing an opportunity for fellows to learn from the global health community and for experts to witness the power of management and leadership to improve health outcomes.
