Based on research and experience of different professionals there is a need for a framework and processes of professionalization of health care leaders in Kenya. Think briefly about recognized professionals in Kenya: doctors, nurses, accountants, engineers, architects, lawyers, university professors, law enforcement officers, or electricians. In countries where these professions are effective, they have many of these two elements in common;
- A recognized body of knowledge and competencies, and a process for certification or licensing with standards related to management and leadership.
- An established career path. Professional associations that support continued learning and advocate for the profession. Integrated professional development programs and approved courses are to be taken before one is certified fit to manage a health program.
