The concept of Public Health Management is relatively new in terms of application, but it follows the general concepts of general management.
Dr F. Ohanyido defines Public Health Management as "all strategies such as policies, programs, projects, schemes and other initiatives directed at the protection and promotion of health; and the prevention of illness, injury and disability".
Public Health Management (PHM) is often associated with public sector policies and implementation of activities towards successful health outcome at population level.
Most recently, it has become a significant process for redesigning and reforming local health systems. But recently, some of us in the public health domain have encouraged the development of PHM on multisectoral platforms that will drive successful health outcomes in our communities.
Local Government Chairmen need to be educated in Public Health Management.
