Abstract

The Ethiopian North American Health Professionals Association (ENAHPA) leadership and the Diaspora members mission / vision is the provision of targeted strategic services in preventive health, medical and surgical care, safe motherhood, pediatric and HIV / AIDS care to medically underserved citizens of Ethiopia and Africa. In addition to taking available opportunities despite challenges through good 40 governance, good leadership, transfer of knowledge, skills, technology and research and thus building human resources for sustainable engagement. Yes, good governance and leadership is the moving force behind any kind of human endeavor to achieve a well-defined mission. Good leadership that brings a family, a group, a work force, a people, a nation and a world to a better condition is a journey of self-sacrifice that is well tuned to the real source of power—the followers/the members. Our degree of success as a good leader is directly related with our commitment to serve our followers and our ability to realize they are the force that moves us. Our effectiveness in leadership is a perfect function of our ability to give what we know, what we have and what we hope in terms of time, money, willpower and all that can make a difference. That is where the real secret of good governance and good leadership lie. The vision that a leader has, the stamina he exhibits, the charisma he develops are all reflective of the selfless devotion the person or persons bring to the mission. The ultimate common goal and dream to achieve is to create a conducive, working environment and develop a solid union in collaborative partnership between the host government, the funding authorities, our colleagues/ counterparts and the Diaspora organizations.
