The Capacity Project has ended. Read our final report, Planning, Developing and Supporting the Health Workforce: Results and Lessons Learned from the Capacity Project, 2004-2009.
The current project is CapacityPlus. Led by IntraHealth International, CapacityPlus is the USAID-funded global project uniquely focused on the health workforce needed to achieve the Millennium Development Goals.
A trained, motivated, and supported health workforce provides access to vital health information, services, and commodities. Yet there is a global shortage of 4.3 million health workers and the World Health Organization has named 57 countries facing a health worker crisis.
Placing health workers at the center of every effort, CapacityPlus helps partner countries achieve significant progress in addressing the health worker crisis while also having global impact through alliances with multilateral organizations. The project builds on the successful work of the Capacity Project, which worked in 47 countries.
