Nurses and other health workers can only provide high quality care if they work in a supportive culture and a well-functioning health system. I’ve managed many projects to achieve this in the UK and elsewhere, including:
· €3.6m project on mental health and HIV/AIDS in eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia.
· Noncommunicable diseases programme, European region, World Health Organization, including assignments in Azerbaijan and Russia.
· Health care reform and nursing in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and development of national health strategy.
