Along with four other senior managers, ..., 3 Jan 2008 [cached]
Along with four other senior managers, Milly Katana, who heads up the Uganda country office, will shortly begin the third module of the International Masters in Practicing Management (IMPM).The programme is designed to equip existing managers with advanced skills in leadership and organizational strategy.Having already completed modules at LUMS and McGill University in Montreal, Milly will fly out to the Indian Institute of Management in Bangalore later this month for the next phase of her learning.
Milly, who has been in post since May 2006, is responsible for the overall alignment of the Alliance's country office in Uganda focusing on strategy, partnership building, fundraising and resource mobilization in areas affected by HIV."I signed up to the IMPM because I found that on-the-job management training is not sufficient to prepare me for the challenge of growing our organization in Uganda," said 37-year-old Milly."I did an MBA in Uganda ten years ago, but that course also did not ready me for the combination of conundrums that I face in my job.As country manager I'm always thinking about strategy, finance, public image and so on, and I felt I needed something extra to help me overcome these challenges."
Milly started the IMPM in April 2007 and, after completing the 18-month diploma, plans to register for a Masters degree."I found the LUMS reflective module very empowering and a great platform to build on," she said."It's not always easy to take a step back and analyse the way an organization is running but by doing that you get the overall strategic positioning.This is the biggest learning so far.Also to have patience with individuals and let things take their course without interfering."
There are 27 students on the current IMPM cohort from a range of public, private and not-for-profit organizations."Working with participants from different countries and backgrounds, and sharing practical experiences, has really helped break down any perceived cultural barriers," Milly said.

PHATAM's co-founders are two of the world's leading AIDS activists, Zackie Achmat of the Treatment Action Campaign (TAC) in South Africa and Milly Katana, lobbying and advocacy officer of the Health Rights Action Group in Uganda and member of Board of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB, and Malaria.PHATAM is dedicated to mobilizing communities, political leaders, and all sectors of society to ensure access to antiretroviral (ARV) treatment, as a fundamental part of comprehensive care for all people with HIV/AIDS in Africa."We are angry.Our people are dying," said Katana."We can no longer accept millions of needless AIDS deaths simply because we are poor Africans.We know ARV treatment is feasible in our countries and are launching a movement to demand ARV treatment that won't take ‘no' for an answer."PHATAM representatives planned to attend the WSSD to submit a Declaration of Action with demands of African governments, wealthy country governments, multilateral institutions, and the private sector, including the pharmaceutical industry."The world leaders meeting in Johannesburg must recognize that without a healthy population we cannot have development.Health is a prerequisite for sustainable development-and access to AIDS treatment in Africa is the key to improving health," said Zackie Achmat."We are united in our commitment to ensure that millions of lives are saved on our continent.
"It's true you have African governments, even wealthy countries, talking about mother-to-child-transmission prevention-which is vital as it provides the entry point to both treatment and prevention-but we're asking ‘What about the mothers and the rest of the family?'" continued Katana."We need to find treatment for them quickly-like yesterday-to save their lives and to reverse the tide of the growing orphan epidemic in Africa."PHATAM called for African countries to implement the World Trade Organization's Declaration, signed at the Doha Ministerial Meeting, on the TRIPS Agreement and Public Health, and insisted that the U.S. and other wealthy countries allow countries with limited pharmaceutical manufacturing capacity to purchase low-cost, generic versions of patented medicines from exporting countries once WTO rules on patents have been fully implemented."Pharmaceutical industry profiteering and patent abuse has caused enough death and suffering across our continent.
