Where We Work


Collaborating with the USAID FUNZOKenya project, CapacityPlus contributed to the Ministry of Health’s mandate to train health workers on management of survivors of sexual violence. The project assisted in revising the national curriculum on gender-based violence by developing, testing, and finalizing a new module focused on children and adolescents and a supplemental package of training and performance support materials based on the Technical Considerations for PEPFAR programs in this area. The project also conducted a situation analysis of the current state of Kenya’s social service workforce that provides care to orphans and vulnerable children to inform planning and decision-making by the Ministry of Gender, Children, and Social Development and other key stakeholders. In addition, CapacityPlus evaluated the effects of reorganizing the health workforce through new policies and procedures adopted by two key faith-based organizations (FBOs), the Christian Health Association of Kenya and the Kenya Catholic Commission of Bishops, with support from USAID that began under the Capacity Project. Findings indicate that both institutions vastly improved their human resources management and workforce organization, reduced dissatisfaction and improved working conditions at their facilities, and enhanced communication with the government on FBO-related issues.
