Technical Brief: Strengthening the Health Workforce for Improved HIV Service Delivery - The SHARE Strategy


The Prevention and Organizational Systems - AIDS Care and Treatment (Pro-ACT) project is a seven-year project (2009-2016) funded by USAID and implemented by MSH in five Nigerian states: Niger, Kwara, Kebbi, Sokoto, and Zamfara. Pro-ACT strengthens the capacity of Nigeria's public, private, and community sectors for sustainable HIV/AIDS and TB prevention, control, care and treatment integrated within the health system.

The provision of high quality HIV/AIDS services is largely dependent on the availability of a qualified and trained health care workforce in sufficient numbers, in the right place, at the right time. Further, adequate and highly motivated human resources for health, supported by appropriate training, are critical to ensuring effective linkages across the HIV services continuum of care. MSH developed and implemented the Supporting Health Workforce Action, Retention and Engagement (SHARE) strategy with the aim of strengthening human resource capacities at partner health facilities to ensure the delivery of quality and comprehensive HIV services.
