Collaborative Mentorship Program Improves Health Worker Management

Wycliffe Omanya, Janet Muriuki, Michael Ochieng, Linet Oyucho

IntraHealth International leads the USAID-funded Human Resources for Health (HRH) Capacity Bridge Project to strengthen human resources for health systems in Kenya at the national and county government levels. The project is helping the counties with the transitional management of the current health workforce; strengthening the national and county human resource management (HRM) functions and systems; strengthening HR data and information systems, including integration with the national health management information systems for improved decision-making; and establishing a strong coordination mechanism to bring together all 47 counties to create an agenda for HRH. 

This approach has required many elements of collaboration, learning, and adapting (CLA).


This case study was submitted as part of USAID's CLA Case Competition, held in August 2015. Taken together, this collection of submissions illustrates the diversity of ways collaborating, learning, and adapting approaches are being operationalized in the field. Stringent judging criteria was used to determine official CLA Case Competition winners, so not all submissions should be considered an official USAID endorsement of best practice. To view all entries, visit the CLA Case Competition page.
