Celebrating 40 Years

Director General

Professor Yoswa M. Dambisya
Director General
ECSA Health Community

I would like to thank the Health Ministers and the Advisory Committee of the ECSA Health Community for entrusting me with the responsibility of steering the ECSA Health Community Secretariat. I take this responsibility with humility and pledge my commitment to give of my best.

ECSA Health Community has been in existence for 40 years, during which period a lot has been achieved. Globally, health systems have transformed over the last few decades, and that has tremendously affected the way we do business. My conviction is that as a regional block, we ought to assess our methods of work in future to match the changing global trends.

The need for effective policies and responsive health systems to improve health services delivery cannot be over emphasized. Similarly, the need for strong and successful African institutions remains critical in our search for African solutions to African problems.

I therefore join the secretariat with confidence in the team that I have found. I pledge that ECSA Health Community will continue to foster regional cooperation, provide technical support and the necessary expertise, conduct capacity building initiatives to improve the health workforce and avail the necessary evidence to inform policy and practice. In this way, together with the Member States, we shall significantly contribute to the improvement of the wellbeing of the people in ECSA Health Community region.
