CapacityPlus End-of-Project Event

CapacityPlus held its end-of-project event at the Hilton Hotel/Crystal City in Arlington, Virginia, on September 17, 2015.

The agenda featured opening and closing panels on human resources for health (HRH) investments and future priorities; a project overview from CapacityPlus project director, Kate Tulenko; a video about comprehensive HRH strengthening in Uganda; a storytelling session placing the project’s work in the context of the challenges faced by an individual health worker; a marketplace with demos of project tools and approaches; and two rounds of interactive breakout sessions in which participants learned more in-depth about CapacityPlus’s country-level results and lessons learned.

The USAID-funded flagship health workforce project, CapacityPlus supported 26 countries to achieve health goals and strengthen delivery of services through information systems, education, training, retention, productivity, leadership, and human resources management.
