ABOUT HeSMA

OUR STORY

Health Systems Management Association (HeSMA) was founded through collaborative efforts of individual health managers and representatives of Kenyatta University and Kenya Methodist University. The representatives selected a working team that put together a constitution, registered the association and developed this strategic plan.

Although great strides have been made in improving the health indicators in Africa in the last 20 years, poor management of the sector has hindered it from being adequately responsive to the needs of the population. Of great concern, has been the level of management responsibilities put on health workers with minimal training and experience in management.

In 2013, the Health Systems Management Association (HeSMA) was established and registered as an organization to champion health systems managers’ aspirations for a better managed health sector. Guided by the motto Professionalism in Health Management through Systems approach, HeSMA supports health systems managers in their professional and academic growth, and development. Since its inception, it was acknowledged that HeSMA was positioning itself for a long arduous but rewarding journey.
