English term or phrase: empowered to act
In order to achieve the government's public health objectives, leaders are selected, trained and empowered to act.
Bradley Prescott
Spanish translation:Autofacultados para actuar
Explanation:
these leaders are not being 'authorized to act' by their hierarchical status. They are empowered to act due to their skills and training. The source of this empowerment lies in their skills not on their authority. This word is usually associated with self-empowerment in English.

Excellent explanation! I would say that your explanation gives a very precise idea of what is meant in the context.
It would be nice to have some reference to back up your explanation, but I must say that I'm am duly impressed
and inclined to go with your answer.

Thank you very much,
Bradley Prescott
