Officials Gather in Kinshasa, DRC for Course on Health Sector Decentralization
In May, the HFG project supported the second “International Course on Decentralization in the Health Sector”, held in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). The five-day course was a follow up to the first decentralization course in May 2016. The course was so successful that participants asked that the HFG project consider organizing more courses on the topic. Both courses were designed to inform the ongoing decentralization process that was established as an objective in the country’s 2006 Constitution. The Constitution defined different roles for the national and provincial governments, supporting efforts to develop additional laws and regulations relating to decentralization in general and specifically to the health sector, as well as the future implementation process.
