In 2017, we will publish an exciting new book on global health leadership featuring case studies from our members. We invite you to submit a chapter proposal…
Overview: In this book, we will bring together an inter-disciplinary group of academics, researchers, and leaders from the APRU network to help illustrate theoretical and conceptual ideas of leadership using actual, recent cases of global health (GH) issues faced by APRU GH members.
This timely book will give an overview of the challenges in GH leadership from multiple perspectives, highlighting some of the most important components in GH leadership, including cooperation, problem solving, cultural competency, and vision. Given that GH practice is typically conducted by teams with different professional and cultural backgrounds and contexts, this book will examine multiple examples from different countries and sectors, including private corporations, governments, multi-lateral organizations, NGOS, and communities.
This publication will include 12-14 case studies of approximately 3,000 words each on topics such as tobacco control, non-communicable disease prevention, maternal and child health services, and disaster preparedness. Chapters will also include discussions questions and further recommended readings. The book will be published by Springer through their Springer Briefs series.
