Capacity Building: Learnings from ‘Strengthening Health Info Systems’ Conference

Strengthening HIS Accra Meeting May2015“Strengthening Health Information System toward Interoperability in West Africa Region” was a conference that brought together stakeholders to look at health systems and lessons learned from the Ebola crisis.  Being the non-technical person that I am, my take-aways were about the people.  Capacity Building.  What is needed to train people in skills to manage systems and retain them after they learned these skills?

From what I learned and what was discussed, I found that four areas in which things were needed in capacity building.  Leadership.  Staffing.  System.  Learning.  The sketchnote describes them in detail.
