Funzo Kenya

Funzo Kenya supports the Government of Kenya’s efforts to strengthen its health worker education and training systems. “Funzo” means training in Kiswahili. The activity works across the public and private sectors to improve pre-service education of health workers, increase the number of health workers graduating from Kenya’s medical training institutions, expand access to training for existing health workers, and link professional licensing to ongoing professional development. The activity initiates public-private partnerships to increase available funding for health worker training and professional development.
 
Key partners on the project include: Ministry of Health, National AIDS and STI Control Program, Kenya Medical Supplies Agency, Director of HR Planning and Management Results for Development, Kenya Healthcare Federation, Kenya Medical Training Institute, Great Lakes University of Kisumu, University of North Carolina’s School of Nursing, University of Nairobi, Moi University, and Kenya’s top health training colleges and universities.
