New Webinar Series To Strengthen Social Welfare Workforce

In a post in USAID’s “IMPACTblog,” Kristen Wenz and James Orlando of USAID describe a July 14 webinar that was the first in the PEPFAR/USAID Social Service Workforce Strengthening series, which is “intended to encourage the sharing of information, expertise and promising practices for addressing the needs of the social welfare workforce through a series of facilitated discussions.” The first session, titled, “Lessons Learned from the Global Healthcare Workforce,” attracted more than 100 attendees from 18 countries and “explored ways in which resources, tools and successful approaches piloted by those engaged in efforts to strengthen human resources for health (HRH) can benefit global and local social service workforce strengthening initiatives,” they write (8/10).
