Oscar L Kashala – a politician in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and a candidate in the 2006 presidential election- equips a platform of discussion on innovative solutions and methods to improve the resilience of health systems in a financially tolerable way during these unsettled times.
Oscar graduated from Kinshasa University Medical School in 1980, completing honors and training in internal medicine along with pathology at the University of Kinshasa. Later at the University of Lausanne and the University of Geneva Medical Schools. He is a physician with an international reputation and a high level of compassion bent on ensuring people get the support and dignity they deserve through social medicine.
In 1986, the World Health Organization (WHO/AFRO) awarded him a fellowship for medical oncology in Boston. Then he obtained a company in cancer biology at Harvard University, Boston. This was followed by admission into a doctoral program in cancer biology and immunology in a combined degree program (Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology). He received a Doctor of Science degree from Harvard University in 1992.
His other ventures include “Afrigentech Company Limited” in Drug Discovery, innovative Pharmaceutical Research and Development, and molecular diagnostics. Afrigentech is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company and a healthcare systems corporation that focuses on research and development (R&D) and manufacturing innovative pharmaceutical products from natural sources for human and animal health in emerging markets of Africa.
In light of this remarkable health concern, all countries have ramped up measures to mitigate the pressure on their healthcare systems. Countries have strengthened access to health care, emphasizing the importance of high-quality universal health coverage. The situation has revealed the extent of versatile health systems.
While another common challenge to effective governance is a lack of resources, which can include financial resources and human capital; when an organization needs more resources to support its governing body, it can be challenging to achieve success. Fortunately, there are ways to overcome these challenges and build an effective system of governance. By clearly defining roles and responsibilities, maintaining commitment among all members of the governing body, and ensuring adequate resources, organizations can set themselves up for success.
Oscar has always put people first: The health, safety, and welfare of the citizens of the Congo is the first job of the government, and the goal is to achieve maximum performance on the human capital index, record economic growth, and creation a true middle class ensuring social up mobility for the yet forgotten, voiceless, destitute, and the abandoned.
Oscars government promises to reform the health care system and deliver world-class and efficient services to every city, town, and village of the New Congo. There are key unmet medical needs that his government says will be at the forefront of our public health governance, especially psychological trauma related to armed conflicts, maternal-child health, major communicable and non-communicable diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, cancer. We will establish nationwide centers for prevention, detection, monitoring, and control of pandemics outbreaks and strengthen global health security
