Strengthening Capacity and Commitment in Health Programming.

Fact Sheet | December 20, 2019

Chemonics integrates capacity strengthening, skills transfer, and organizational development into all our work, including global health. Learn more about how we strengthen capacity and commitment in health programming.

As the development community continues to reorient its strategies and partnership models to support countries on their paths to self-reliance, there is an opportunity to further hone governments’ and local groups’ technical, financial, and management capacity to independently oversee development programs and achieve locally sustained results. At Chemonics, we facilitate this process by integrating capacity strengthening, skills transfer, and organizational development into all our work, including global health. We recognize that strengthening capacity and commitment to champion health services and programs requires a shift from conventional formal training to more active, experiential learning. That is why we use multiple avenues to support government, civil society, and individual actors to advance their health goals — from self-assessments, peer learning and research, and communities of practice to social and behavior change communications, hands-on mentoring and coaching, and adaptable tools and policy frameworks.
