Tom Bossert is working in conjunction with the National Institute of Health and Family Welfare (NIHFW) for the World Bank Institute (WBI). WBI acts as a global catalyst for creating, sharing, and applying the cutting edge knowledge necessary for poverty reduction and economic and social development, and by stimulating the conditions for client countries to be able to utilize knowledge to achieve development goals particularly a development program on health systems policy and management in India. To achieve this goal they designed a 5-6 day health training course with a focus on human resource management. They helped to create the concept, find local Indian resources and staff, and make recommendations for suitable case studies. The team will also make recommendations for long-term sustainability of the course.
