International health consultancy, HLSP, hosts leading edge healthcare seminar

Mott MacDonald’s international healthcare consultancy, HLSP is hosting a seminar “Enabling decentralisation in the health sector: beyond structures” to demonstrate how working with government to build capacity at local levels can help deliver sustainable healthcare solutions.

Guest speakers from HLSP, WHO and the Kenyan Ministry of Health will address topics such as human resourcing and funding issues. During the seminar, delegates will gain valuable insights from speakers’ first hand experiences of working in the field.

Marcia Hughes, Managing Director of HLSP said, “There is a growing international acceptance that to meet the Millennium Development Goals we must lay down solid foundations for health services. There are no quick fixes. However, by strengthening planning, management and accountability at a local level, where people actually receive their health services, we believe a lasting impact can be made.”

For over 20 years, HLSP has been working in over 100 countries with a focus on improving world health. This seminar also marks the official opening of the consultancy’s Nairobi office. A team of HLSP experts has been assisting DFID on the Decentralisation of Health Services programme since 2000 and HLSP decided to make its presence official by setting up a Kenya office to further assist the progress of Africa’s developing health services.

HLSP’s Africa Director, James McIntyre Brown is organising the seminar to demonstrate HLSP's commitment to making a sustainable difference to Africa's health systems and to encourage an exchange of ideas between local consultancies, government and international donors. He commented, “HLSP wants to nurture synergies between the different strands of our work across the continent, promoting better networking and planning across our African portfolio. We aim to grow our presence in Africa, building on the contacts we’ve made and the experience we have developed. Now that we have our new office in Kenya, we can keep a closer ear to the ground and gain a stronger understanding of the needs of the marketplace. ”
