In a bid to accelerate health delivery for the poorest and most vulnerable groups in Kaduna State, the Lafiya-UK Support for Health in Nigeria, is organising a three-day workshop on Human Capital Development (HCD) from November 16 to 18, 2020.
The HCD training is to sensitise the Media and Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) on the general concept of HCD, share findings of HCD Political Economic Analysis (PEA) and develop an action plan and target advocacies to engage with HCD council and working groups.
Introducing the workshop, the Chairman, Knowledge Management and Communications sub-committee, the media component of Kaduna State Maternal Newborn and Child Accountability Mechanism (KADMAM), Garba Muhammad, spoke on the essence of the workshop, highlighting that its training will cover the aspects of HCD and how the state's HCD can be appropriately covered.
Speaking on the overview of the Lafiya UK programme, Lafiya Accountability Expert, Dr. Ashiru Hamza, assured journalists that the training will expose media personnel on how they can map out clear data for advocacies and communication.
Dr. Hamza further stated that journalists and CSOs will be identified, cultivated and equipped as change agents to help support government on HCD accountability, strengthen delivery mechanism in implementation of government resources and serve as transformational influence.
Meanwhile, the representative of the Special Adviser on HCD Council, Kaduna State, Lillian Shamaki, reeled out the key focus of HCD in the state.
She noted that Education, Health and Nutrition, Skills and Talents development, Social development and Community Engagements are the key focus of the council as the health sector cannot stand alone.
There were also several sessions of group activity, presentation on HCD and questions and answers.
