For some time, the absence of financial literacy among public health practitioners has been a matter of concern because it affects the quality of managerial decisions about the allocation of scarce government and community resources. You have to know revenue sources and allocation priorities to be an effective public health manager/administrator.
In the first of a two-part series on public health finance, three public health department administrators discuss their positions and the importance of financial literacy in public health practice. Examples of how their training in finance improved their resource allocation decisions are provided. The webinar concludes with observations on how to increase financial awareness, the topic of the second webinar in this two-part series, available for viewing on JPHMP Direct after September 14.
