TIPS FOR HEALTH PROJECT SUCCESS
Beyond sustainability to high quality health care
We were pleased to have been awarded a Breakout session this year – for the first time in the history of the Fellowship. The topic was HEALTH PROJECTS - TIPS FOR SUCCESS FROM ROTARIAN DOCTORS
We aimed to highlight that many organizations including Rotary invest resources to improve health care in developing countries. Most succeed, but some fail due to multiple complexities like inadequate management systems, clinical governance, and quality control.
We planned to explore these causes and learn from our challenges to create better projects in the future.
We were privileged to have as key note speaker RI President Elect Barry Rassin who reinforced the need for vigilance when engaging in health projects.
The message about the importance of thinking beyond sustainability and ensuring that all Rotary projects deliver high quality and internationally acceptable service was echoed by foir outstadnig speakers.
295 people attended the session and the majority evaluated the session as informative and helpful.
