Exploring types of leadership in the delivery of global health services: strategies and deliveries
Call for papers for: Leadership in Health Services
COVID-19 Update: When we developed the call for this special issue, we had no idea that a global pandemic in the form of COVID-19 would engulf us. While this pandemic does not change the scope of our special issue, it certainly adds to and expands it to allow for renewed research and accounts of leadership in this new world of health and social isolation. It focuses renewed attention on the role of the WHO as a leading body concerned with global health, on funding, research, testing and treatment, the role of carers and health specialists, caring for our most vulnerable, and importance of epidemiology and statistical research in discovering trends and practices. Where is the leadership? How should we define it? And how should we view it?
This special issue of Leadership in Health Services will be devoted to addressing different leadership practices in enhancing health care access to vulnerable groups in developing countries. It will assess the role of different treatment options in meeting the needs of individuals living with HIV/ AIDS and explore different health care financing strategies. These areas will be of tremendous help to health care planners, health departments, scholars and researchers actively working in the fields of public health and global health. The special issue will address best leadership practices necessary for meeting current health challenges in developing countries.
Submissions to this special issue be a welcome addition to current thinking about how to improve health care access to marginalized population in resource-limited countries. Papers included will provide research and analysis on this best leadership practices for health care planners and scholars as they chart new and innovative ways of meeting universal health coverage in developing countries.
