PUBLIC HEALTH WORKFORCE CAPACITY STRENGTHENING
ensuring effective prevention and control of epidemics and other priority public health challenges in Africa.
Health systems can only function with health workers. The equitable distribution of health services to all peoples in all community, state or country depends largely on the availability and accessibility of health workers. Inadvertently, the quality of health care and service delivery is consequent upon the quality of health workers available.
This is in pursuant of our commitment to ensuring effective prevention and control of epidemics and other priority public health challenges in Africa. A highly skilled, motivated, disciplined and supported workforce is catalytic towards this mission.
With a one health and shared priority approach with funding partners, AFENET Nigeria has led the way in implementing public health workforce capacity development programs with significant impact on the health status of the country.
