We work closely with our suppliers to develop and provide training programmes for many of our customers. Due to high attrition rates within many of the institutions we deal with, we realise that in order to have a lasting affect these trainings must be held in a sustainable way. With this in mind, our trainings typically concentrate on the
training of trainers. We find that this minimises the loss of an institution's capacity even as skilled employees turnover.
In addition to such direct trainings, we regularly hold events that concentrate more broadly on capacity building and knowledge sharing. This Continuous Medical Education (CME) often takes form as conferences, workshops and seminars.
Over the years we have been involved in the training of:
- Health care workers on the proper dispensing of low cost anti-malarial medicines; focusing on product knowledge and supply chain management.
- Phlebotomists, lab technicians, nurses, doctors and clinical officers in blood collection and infusion therapy procedures
- Government officials and health care workers on injection safety procedures and methods
- Public and private sector employees on the fundamentals of ARV supply chain management.
