Audit of USAID/Namibia’s Efforts To Address Critical Shortages in Trained HIV/AIDS Health Workers.
Fiscal Year: 2010
Audit Report Available: No
The expansion of HIV/AIDS care and treatment requires an expansion in the workforce to provide these services, but Namibia has no schools of medicine and pharmacy. In FY 2008, an existing scholarship program for students in these disciplines was expanded to increase the number of students attending training institutions in South Africa, with a requirement to return to Namibia to provide national service. Along with support for training and supporting new, highly trained health professionals, HIV/AIDS activities also support the growing number of personnel necessary to provide HIV/AIDS services. In Namibia, HIV/AIDS activities support the salaries of nearly all clinical staff doing treatment work and counseling and testing in the public sector.
This audit will determine whether USAID/Namibia’s activities have been effective in addressing the shortage of trained HIV/AIDS health workers.
