USAID Concludes Health Project

USAID’s seven-year-old “Strengthening Human Resources for Health” programme that trained nearly 50,000 health workers has reached its end. The project’s goal was to build local capacity for the development of systems to manage human resources and improve the quality of health worker education and training. USAID invested in more than 90 public and private higher education institutions to improve the quality of the curriculum and practical training for various health disciplines, including physicians, midwives, anesthetists, health extension workers and emergency medical and biomedical technicians. “This is an excellent example of how investments in people – in this case, investing in building a skilled workforce for a stronger health system – results in positive measurable impacts,” said USAID Mission Director Leslie Reed. The project, which in addition to improving skills training also supported the Ministry of Health in developing a 10-year human resources strategic plan, was implemented by a consortium of partners led by Jhpiego, a nonprofit affiliated with Johns Hopkins University.
