Dear Colleague/partners,

The APSP is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr Tavengwa Nhongo as its first Executive Director with effect from 1st January 2011.

Dr. Nhongo was selected from among a strong pool of candidates that were identified through a rigorous recruitment process led and supported by an independent Human Resource Development and Recruitment firm and the APSP board of directors.

Dr Nhongo has extensive experience which spans over 30 years gained in public, private and international development institutions. Of these, 22 years have been spent in nongovernment organizations, 12 of them as Regional Representative for HelpAge International. Prior to this, he was the Director of HelpAge Zimbabwe and Deputy Field Director for the same organization.

Please join me in welcoming Dr Nhongo to the APSP family and it is my hope that you will provide Dr Nhongo and the APSP the necessary support that will enable it achieve its set objective of promoting social protection as a poverty alleviation strategy for the poor and vulnerable populations in Africa.

Best wishes for the new year,

Edmond Odaba

DIGNIFIED CARE DESPITE DIFFICULT COLLEAGUES

Patient care and quality can be compromised when carers and professionals display bullying, manipulative, intimidating and negative behaviours. In addition, you can feel de-motivated, stressed and distracted. This course will help you how to look differently at the situation and, therefore, deal with it more effectively to improve dignity and respect in the care environment.
