Guided by the principle that decision-makers on the frontlines of the epidemic can transform health systems into more efficient, effective and responsive operations to help protect HIV-positive mothers and their babies, Johnson & Johnson created the Partnership for Management Development (PMD) to enhance the management skills of African healthcare leaders.

Working with the Ministries of Health in African countries, the University of Cape Town Graduate School of Business, local implementers, other funding partners and the United States Government Office of the Global AIDS Coordinator, the training includes organizational planning, finance, operations, leadership, human resources, health information systems, social marketing and monitoring and evaluation.

With the success of a two-year pilot program in Swaziland and Lesotho, Johnson & Johnson is working with partners to expand the PMD model to other African countries. By training health care decision-makers, PMD hopes to build strong, integrated health systems that recognize the unique challenges of preventing mother-to-child transmission.
