Wits Vice Chancellor Academic Citizenship Award Winner Laetitia Rispel on citizenship and leadership.
National public health associations, schools and programs of public health and the World Federation of Public Health Associations (WFPHA) have a role to play in building and fostering leadership in and for public health. Civil society has a responsibility to advocate for and create transformative change and it has the leadership, resources and means to make it happen. Collectively, national public health associations such as the Public Health Association of South Africa (PHASA) and the WFPHA create a strong and vibrant civil society to defend and promote the interests of the public’s health. Africa’s public health legacy is strong and vibrant, and will be sustained and substantial well beyond the end of the Millennium Development Goals cycle in 2015.
The American Public Health Association (APHA) is celebrating 141 years of public health advocacy, policy development, support for community health and expertise in health promotion, disease prevention and health protection. The organisation looks forward to a long and productive relationship with PHASA and AFPHA. Our presence at the conference declares our support and the promise of future collaborations and mutual attack on the many public health issues that continue to plague the globe. This article focuses on the importance of leadership for health equity and social justice in this regard.
The conference runs from 30-31 May in Johannesburg and will bring together senior management from health institutions to foster a deeper understanding of strategic leadership and management skills.
