Capacity Building

Capacity building is key to improve the health situation in any country. Capacity building is all about empowering people to identify their needs in their very geographical region and develop strategies and capacities to cope with the specific problems and needs. This starts with enriching the university education by more practical skills, such as training in interview techniques to retrieve information but also the capacity to analize the collected data. Beyond this capacity building is about basing on information in the regions. So meetings amongst experts and mutal visits are an important tool.

GHP3 successfully contibuted to this crucial aspect through various project out of which EDULINK STARND and EDULINK PopTRCD should be explicitly mentioned.
