The PLP helped me to look at things with a broader perspective.  I made lots of contacts which can help build my future career at home.

The PLP, in collaboration with Health Alliance International (a UW-affiliated NGO), has built a partnership with the Sudan federal Ministry of Health (MOH) and its research and training institute, the Public Health Institute (PHI), to expand health policy and leadership development capacity.

The first component of this initiative was a leadership/management training program for district health care professionals in Blue Nile State (BNS). The first phase of this program was a week-long intensive workshop in early February 2008, followed by three months of mentored "practice" in participants' work sites, and then a second debriefing workshop in April. Mentors were recruited from among Fellows of the PLP and other leadership training programs, PHI faculty, MOH leadership, and elsewhere. The Blue Nile training was a pilot of what now has been scaled up into a nationwide program called the Global Health Leadership Program (hyperlink this name to the new page outlined below) to strengthen the leadership and management capacity of district health units in ten new states. Financial support for the pilot training was provided by WHO, federal MOH, and the PLP, with the expanded initiative receiving funding from the World Bank Multi-Donor Trust Fund and the MOH.
