In December, IntraHealth International, lead partner of the Capacity Project, received a $49 million, five-year Capacity Project Associate Award (FY2009–2013) in Namibia. The award will further the Project’s successful work in strengthening a network of faith-based and community-based indigenous Namibian organizations to offer high-quality, comprehensive HIV/AIDS services, and in strengthening human resources information systems in conjunction with the Government of Namibia. Dr. Emad Aziz continues in his role as team leader.
In 2007, the IntraHealth-led Capacity Project conducted a study in 44 health sites in Rwanda to determine the nature, prevalence, causes and consequences of workplace violence on human resources for health. This study is intended to assist government ministries and other interested institutions develop policy and programmatic responses to the problem.
