Training programmes for professionals promoting innovation and renewal within the public sector in Sub-Saharan Africa

Karolinska Institutet is currently running training programmes targeting professionals from several countries in Sub-Saharan Africa. The purpose is to strengthen the capacity to contribute to innovation in the public sector and to support the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development.


The focus is how to lead and organise for innovation, develop smart welfare services, and provide an inclusive service design with sustainable, efficient and effective services. The training is delivered mainly online.

Both programmes are part of the newly initiated Centre of Excellence for Sustainable Health , a collaboration between Karolinska Institutet, Makerere University and other African academic partners. The training programmes are implemented with the financial support from the Swedish Institute and will run during 2020-2022.
