African Palliative Care Association Endorses iHRIS Software
The African Palliative Care Association (APCA), which works to reduce unnecessary pain and suffering from life-limiting illnesses across Africa, has endorsed the iHRIS free, open source health workforce information software. APCA announced the endorsement during its fourth triennial conference held September 17-20 in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Commenting on the iHRIS software, APCA Executive Director, Dr. Emmanuel Luyirika said, “As APCA is committed to see health systems across Africa strengthened to address the continent’s growing disease burden, we know that a key building block to health systems strengthening is human resource management. The development of this new software therefore introduces a revolutionary and transformational approach to strengthening the systems that are necessary to address patient needs by improving health administration on the continent.”
