Program Management for Epidemic Preparedness (PMEP) is a leadership and management program that enables teams to accelerate epidemic preparedness in their countries through peer exchange and practical learning.
Grow technical and organizational skills
Prioritize and maximize investments with improved leadership and management skills.
Advance your work through experiential learning
Sessions are tailored to your country’s planned or existing preparedness initiatives.
Engage in peer learning and problem-solving
Share lessons and expertise in a peer-led, global community of preparedness leaders.
We provide training for teams of up to six mid-to senior-level managers in government from diverse sectors and disciplines, capable of providing robust support to preparedness initiatives. Teams have the option to include 1-2 participants from their WHO Country Office, World Bank Project Implementation Unit (PIU) or Global Fund Principal Recipient Project Management Unit (PMU) for a total of 5-7 participants. Application is by invitation only. Countries invited to apply are from the African or Eastern Mediterranean Regions and are confirmed or potential recipients of pandemic preparedness and response (PPR) funding mechanisms.
Countries that express intent to establish a National Action Plan for Health Security (NAPHS) secretariat, coordination team, or equivalent structure have a stronger case for acceptance into the program. The inclusion of women leaders and members of other underrepresented groups is encouraged.
RTSL covers costs related to the training, including travel, visa, accommodation and per diem allowance. Payment for attending the training is not provided.
PMEP has trained health security leaders from:
The Gambia, Ghana, Liberia, Nigeria, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda, Ethiopia, Kenya, Lesotho, Namibia, and South Sudan.
Participants who successfully complete the PMEP Core program are invited to apply for PMEP Connect, a global community of leaders who receive funding to advance their NAPHS and dedicated coaching and collaboration with experts from Resolve to Save Lives and partners.
Participation in PMEP Core does not guarantee inclusion in PMEP Connect.
