Led by IntraHealth International and partners, CapacityPlus was the USAID-funded global project uniquely focused on the health workforce needed to achieve the Millennium Development Goals.
Placing health workers at the center of every effort, CapacityPlus helped 27 countries achieve significant progress in addressing the health worker crisis while also having global impact through alliances with multilateral organizations. The project built on the successful work of the Capacity Project.
CapacityPlus served partner countries and multilaterals by offering state-of-the-art expertise, models, tools, training, and analyses adapted to each context. These services helped countries move closer to having the right health worker in the right place with the right skills and support. The project worked with public, nonprofit, faith-based, and for-profit organizations contributing to better human resources for health.
Through service and partnership, CapacityPlus accelerated progress toward national goals for improving maternal and child health, increasing access to family planning and reproductive health services, heightening access to HIV/AIDS services, and reducing the toll of malaria, tuberculosis, and other infectious diseases.
