Responsive Training and Learning

Innovative training and learning to strengthen provider performance for sustainable improvements in global reproductive health

Responsive training and learning was a key element in the PRIME II Project’s mission to improve family planning and reproductive health care around the world. In collaboration with leading global health organizations and host-country institutions, PRIME focused on improving the performance of primary-level providers such as nurses, midwives, traditional birth attendants and community health promoters. By designing high-quality training and learning interventions that made efficient use of available resources, PRIME equipped these frontline health care workers with the knowledge and skills they need to perform well. Our programs were structured to ensure that learning acquired during training is transferred to the workplace and supported by all the supervisory, administrative and logistical systems necessary to sustain improved performance.
