This is with the hope of expanding Nigeria's human resource in the health sector.
At the scholarship awards in Abuja yesterday, Malik Jaffer, CapacityPlus deputy director for health systems strengthening and innovation in Washington, United States (US) where the selection was done based on a questionnaire said the project was working to "ensure health workers have the tools, support and training they need to provide communities they serve with the best services."
Samuel Ngobua, chief of party for CapacityPlus, a project of Intrahealth International, funded by United States Agency for International Development (USAID), said the project was also working on procuring direct institutional support for 11 health training institutions from six priority states.
The support includes database of human resource for health, workforce development and tracking, and information systems to manage and retain human resource.
World Health Organisation (WHO) representative, Dr Andrew Mbewe, said Nigeria was justifiably concerned about its human resource for health.
