Mid-career global public health professionals operate in demanding and changing climate. They must initiate policies, hold health care providers accountable, and build partnerships across a vast array of communities and stakeholders. The International Program in Public Health Leadership (IPPHL) will teach participants the skills of analysis, leadership, communication, and persuasion that will enable them to advance population health in this increasingly complex, resource-constrained environment. The program will offer a strong focus on individual coaching and mentoring, peer sharing and learning, and development of a community of practice to give participants access to a wider network to help them address the policy and program implementation challenges they face. The University of Washington, in collaboration with the Center for Creative Leadership provide internationally recognized expertise in a variety of critical fields including: theory of organizational management and change, policy formation and negotiation, communication, and leadership.
