Abstract

There is very little evidence to guide design and monitoring of health capacity strengthening (CS) efforts in LMICs
• Using published evidence we have developed and tested an innovative and systematic process for designing and monitoring CS projects in a variety of settings in Africa
• Our 5-stage pathway includes defining the desired CS outcomes, determining optimal capacity needed to achieve the outcomes and identifying capacity gaps through a needs assessment
• An action plan to fill the gaps, with measurable indicators allows progress to be monitored
•Strategies for promoting sustainability are incorporated from the outset.
