The Western Area Health Initiative
Updates and features
WAHI has made solid progress in 2014. 16 projects have been implemented in the three provinces: including in the areas of healthcare reform, primary health care interventions on NCD prevention and control, healthy city forums in WAHI cities, and other activities covering maternal and child health, HIV/AIDs and traditional Chinese medicine, etc.
Throughout 2014-2015, WHO commenced a health promotion leadership program called ProLead – a series of capacity building workshops for health leaders of the three provinces, aiming to strengthen the leadership skills of multi-sectoral teams to address specific health issues. Another important training program - Global Health Learning Centre (GHLC) has also been provided by the WHO Regional Office for the Western Pacific.
