Strengthening the capacity of frontline health workers to manage health resources, including manpower, money, and materials, is crucial to improving access to equitable and high-quality services. As part of efforts geared towards improving service delivery through enhanced facility and financial management in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), the FCT Primary Health Care Board (FCT PHCB) is collaborating with USAID Integrated Health Project (IHP) to launch a novel facility and financial management capacity building program that will be implemented by Development Governance International Consult (DGI Consult). The program’s activities include; the FCT-level training-of-trainers workshop, Area Council-level training workshop and facility mentoring.
The 3-day FCT-level training-of-trainers workshop is organized to train participants on using the PHC facility and financial and management training manual and toolkit developed by the National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) with the support of IHP. The participants will also be trained on the modalities for cascading the training to the PHC Officers-In-Charge, Ward Development Committee members and facility accountants in the FCT’s 6 Area Councils.
The objectives of the 3-day FCT-level training-of-trainers workshop include:
- To deepen the understanding of participants on key PHC management principles and concepts;
- To build the capacity of participants on key areas of facility management, including human resource for health, financial management, drugs and consumables, monitoring and supervision;
- To acquaint participants with tools and processes for effective facility management; and
- To train participants on the modalities of cascading the training to the PHC level.
Date: Monday 3rd – Wednesday 5th April 2023
Venue: Valencia Hotel, Wuse 2, Abuja
The expected participants for the FCT-level training-of-trainers workshop include selected trainees from the FCT PHCB, Area Councils and FCT health parastatals. Others include representatives of the FCT PHCB, NPHCDA, USAID-IHP, NPHCDA and DGI Consult.
