On February 28th, MCSP hosted the first of a two-part webinar series to share the Program’s global and country-level learning for human capacity development efforts. This webinar summarized MCSP’s global guidance on mentoring based on a literature review and results from a survey of 23 countries that implement mentoring programs. The event also provided the opportunity to learn from three country mentoring programs: Rwanda, Laos and Ethiopia.

A second webinar, “Nothing gets transformed until your mind is transformed,” will take place April 4th from 9:00 am – 10:30 am, and focus on transformative approaches to strengthening pre-service education strengthening in Ghana, Kenya and Liberia. Strong pre-service education systems are critical for producing a fit-for-purpose health workforce. The Lancet commission’s report — entitled Health Professionals for a New Century — and the 2016 report from the United Nations High-Level Commission on Health Employment and Economic Growth both call out the need for transforming pre-service education.
This event will include time for audience questions on implementing priority interventions — from strengthening curriculum and practice, to integrating digital technology and strengthening academic leadership and management.
