Cameroon Study Research Brief

Report

This research brief highlights excerpts of findings from a study conducted by the USAID-funded Leadership, Management, and Governance and Evidence to Action Projects in Cameroon.

The study took place at two hospitals in Yaoundé, Cameroon, from October 2014-September 2015, and studied the effect of combining a leadership development program with clinical training to improve postpartum family planning services in Cameroon.

Study results indicated that training a clinical cadre of health workers is necessary, but that it alone may not be sufficient for them to apply the skills to real-life workplace challenges, and that leadership and management training could help bridge that gap.

Full findings and results from the survey are available in the endline study report.
