Governments and donors invest millions every year in efforts to improve health worker performance, relying heavily on classroom-based training and supervision, with modest and varying improvements. Countries that want to integrate newer, more evidence-based and effective approaches often struggle to fit them into their systems. How can we help support the transition to newer, more complex approaches for improving learning and performance among health workers in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs)?
Hosted by USAID MOMENTUM Country and Global Leadership, this webinar will discuss some promising approaches for improving health worker performance in LMICs, with illustrations focused on quality improvement, mentorship, and blended learning. Together, we will explore results from recent studies on approaches to improve health worker learning and performance, highlight examples from countries on how they are translating this research into practice, and foster discussion on how countries can leverage this experience and knowledge to strengthen the health workforce of the future.
