Lessons in Global Health: Let Poor Countries Run their Own Programmes

This article makes the case for country-owned programs with sound leadership and resource management; even in variable financial, political, and environmental circumstances. Malawi is put forth as an example of a country which has had great success in taking charge of its Neglected Tropical Disease program implementation. These successful country-owned public health initiatives come in different guises around the world, but at the heart of every successful one is an integrated, multi-sectoral approach.
