I had high hopes for the Performance-Oriented Project Management class, and it met all of my expectations. Interestingly, it did this in part by cementing what I already knew as well as providing new ideas.

I came to the course with three major questions about supply chain management, and they were all answered.

The Union’s courses continue to provide quality training and education to its participants. Our years of dedicated educational services originates from the need of valuable knowledge and skills to be acquired by public health professionals, from low- and middle-income countries. We strive to provide the necessary tools needed to address the challenges faced by national programme managers and healthcare administrators in limited-resource settings.

I was impressed by this advanced tuberculosis (TB) course that took all of us participants from theory to practice in TB care and prevention. It was well designed and meticulously implemented. It provided plenty of up-to-date supporting resources and articles and we got a chance to experience what happens in real life during the field visits. The faculty chosen for this course was exceptionally good and engaging. I have already applied data-driven supervision and capacity building through sharing evidence-based inputs in my work.
