PharmAccess partners EDC to build capacity of healthcare professionals
PharmAccess Foundation Nigeria has partnered with the Enterprise Development Centre of the Pan Atlantic University to develop a training curriculum for healthcare professionals called the Health Management Program.
The program is designed with a strong curriculum, facilitated by world class professionals to teach healthcare professionals about the business of healthcare.
The graduation ceremony of all the certificate programs of the Enterprise Development Centre of the Pan Atlantic University, including the Health Management Program held at the institution’s premises on December 5, 2019 with a total of 41 healthcare professionals graduating, bringing to 83, the total number of people that have been trained by the partnership
According to PharmAccess Nigeria Country Director, Njide Ndili, who gave the keynote address at the event, “the core objective of PharmAccess with the HMP is to build a strong network of Alumni who will help change the healthcare sector in Nigeria for the better.”
She further encouraged all the graduands to think about their businesses in the context of new vistas of opportunities as they enter into a new phase. A new decade whose dominant business changes will center on digitization.
“The intersection between PharmAccess and the Enterprise Development Centre being entrepreneurship training for healthcare providers was kicked off in 2017, by heavily subsidizing the tuition by up to 50 percent. Today, the program is self-sustaining and the value evident from the quality of the participants, including the 41 healthcare professionals that graduating in December 2019. The fourth cohort of the Health management Program will commence in March 2020,” she said.
