More than 500 people from 67 countries recently convened online to discuss “Improving the Design, Delivery and Evolution of Capacity Building,” in a LeaderNet seminar facilitated by the MSH-led AIDSTAR-Two project. Capacity-building is a long-term process that improves the performance and sustainability of an individual, group, or organization for better health results.
