Introducing Capacity Building and Mentorship Program

Ashenafi Tazebew of the University of Gondar in Ethiopia will develop a training and supervision program whereby medical and nursing staff working at local health science colleges in Ethiopia are trained to teach and mentor local health care workers to improve their skills, and the quality and safety of immunizations, thereby increasing uptake. They will develop supervisory and mentorship guidelines and tools, and train college workers how to coach primary health care providers and review their performances. They will conduct a randomized field trial over six months to evaluate the quality of the mentorship and its impact on the knowledge and skills of the health workers.
