Building Workforce Capacity: CDC works with the MOH, Christian Health Assoc. of Malawi (CHAM) and College of Medicine (COM) (training institutions) to address healthcare workforce shortages by investing in pre- and in-service training through support of student bursaries, revision of pre-service training curricula, improvement of training colleges infrastructure, and mentoring of teaching staff. CDC has also helped establish residency programs for Obstetrics and Family Medicine, and is collaborating with MOH to institute the Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP). Strengthening Laboratory Systems: CDC supports the MOH in establishing and sustaining a four tiered approach (Central, District, Facility and Community) to strengthen laboratory capacity through an international accreditation process. National diagnostics standards and guidelines have also been developed to assure the quality of laboratory test results throughout the country. Supporting the national sample transportation system that is now up and running this includes Viral Load, EID and TB. Strengthening Surveillance and Health Information Systems: CDC continues to provide technical assistance (TA) to help build the country’s capacity to collect and analyze data for improved program decision-making.
