Health Serve Australia is supporting a new project aimed at improving healthcare management and strengthening health systems in low- and middle-income countries through partnership with ICMDA.

The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the need for strong healthcare systems and the key role of Mission hospitals in sub-optimal contexts. A tripartite partnership between ICMDA, CMC Vellore, and LLU is developing a two-year blended learning postgraduate diploma in Healthcare Management, covering core themes of Health System Strengthening, Hospital Management, and Pandemic Preparedness.

The course will include interactive online modules, supported by videos and monthly webinars, and facilitated with peer group discussions and mentors to encourage learning. The goal is to train leaders of healthcare institutions (both medical and administrative) in healthcare management and health system strengthening to effectively respond to future pandemics.

The two post graduate diplomas on offer are:
- International Postgraduate Diploma of Family Medicine (IPGDFM) and;
- International Postgraduate Diploma of Health Care Management (IPGDHCM).
