I attended a course on Health Systems Strengthening and Health Management at the Institute of Health Management, Pachod (IHMP) in 2011. The course was sponsored by Sightsavers, India. The 15 day course at IHMP was an eye opener for me as I got an exposure to health systems. I acquired skills in designing programme interventions in systems strengthening mode, project management, monitoring, evaluation and project scaling-up. I benefitted immensely from the course as it provided me with a new perspective and made my way of working more effective. The knowledgeable faculty at IHMP, the ambience of the Institute and comfortable accommodation complemented the learning experience.
