Capacity Building, a core EQUIP  service offered as a rapid response support mechanism to Ministries of Health and in-country local implementing partners, strengthens the human and institutional capacity. It also works to strengthen the linkages between Government departments and supports them to effectively deliver public health services . Community health workers and other public servants are provided with coaching, mentoring, and on-the-job training, while key administrative and technical resources are modernized to enhance the Ministry of Health’s overall service delivery capability.

What does Capacity Building look like in practice?

In order to effectively manage and deliver on their outcomes, civil servants may require support and training on various elements of their day-to-day job, from procurement and human resources, to inventory management and even computer skills.

By prioritising, planning and securing approval and resources to deliver on identified services, in-country teams will be able to ultimately develop and execute a plan for sustaining these capacity building gains, long after EQUIP has left their country.

Armed with knowledge, skills and even new hope and determination for the difference  they can make in the lives of community members, staff will be able to better manage, control and oversee their departmental resources and activities.
