Capacity Project

The Capacity Project strengthened human resources to implement quality health programming in developing countries, focusing on:

  1. Improving workforce planning and leadership to ensure that the right type and number of health workers are deployed to the right locations
  2. Developing better education and training programs so that health workers have the knowledge and skills to meet the needs of their communities
  3. Strengthening systems to support workforce performance and encourage workers to remain on the job.

This five-year cooperative agreement began in October 2004. It was led by IntraHealth and enriched through the extensive experience of six other global organizations serving as partners (IMA World Health, Jhpiego, Liverpool Associates in Tropical Health, Management Sciences for Health, PATH, Training Resources Group) as well as collaboration with numerous global, regional and national organizations.
