With the growing number of health challenges and health inequities in the Philippines today and with the intention of achieving the health targets of the Millennium Development Goals by 2015, the Zuellig Family Foundation (ZFF) and the Department of Health (DOH) entered into a partnership in order to implement the Health Leadership and Governance Program (HLGP) to all NAPC and Non-NAPC municipalities in the country.
HLGP is a strategic initiative targeting different stakeholders in the health sector. It aims to equip DOH Regional Offices, DOH representatives, PhilHealth Regional offices, Provincial Chief of Hospitals, Governors, PHOs, Local Chief Executives and Municipal Health Officers, with the right skills and know-hows in attaining the health targets. HLGP is the umbrella program of the following programs namely: the Health Leadership and Management for the Poor (HLMP); the Provincial Leadership and Governance for the Poor (PLGP) and the Municipal Leadership and Governance Program (MLGP). HLMP is a one-year, two module leadership program for CHDs, PhilHealth Regional Offices, DSWD Regional Office, regional and Provincial Chief of Hospital and academic partners. PLGP on the other hand is a three-year, three-module program for Governors and PHOs while MLGP is a one-year two module program for LCEs and MHOs that is supplemented by coaching and mentoring sessions from DOH-CHD during practicum. The participants are expected to improve their municipal health indicators as course deliverables, which includes engaging other local stakeholders such as the municipal health board.
