Boost Sparks: EPI LAMP Uganda Breakthrough Project
Meet Lynka Ineza, Program Manager at Yale’s Global Health Leadership Initiative, Rita Atugonza, Senior Medical Officer at the Ministry of Health in Uganda, and John Kissa, Data Manager with the Ministry of Health in Uganda. This stellar team joins this series representing the EPI Leadership and Management Program, also known as EPI LAMP.
Throughout this Spark, the team dives into their breakthrough project, which is at the heart of each EPI LAMP program team. For this breakthrough project, “Team Uganda” used a comparison district to analyze how to improve measles-rubella coverage in Bukomansimbi, one of the lowest covered districts in Uganda. Continue listening to learn more about the EPI LAMP program and hear from the Ugandan team on how they collected data and conducted interviews, amidst COVID-19, to inform their breakthrough project, as well as tap into some of their key lessons learned.
“"...if you have a well-coordinated team, you can come up with solutions that you can then apply in your city. I think the comparison district was very key in illustrating that fact, because we got two districts that were of similar sizes, the same resources, but very different coverage performances. So, it illustrated good leadership as very key when it comes to performance."”Rita Atugonza, Senior Medical Officer, Ministry of Health, Uganda
