Training and Implementation Support


A proper implementation is a critical factor for the success of all health programs. Poor program design, poor management and poor use of resources all contribute to implementation failures. However, these issues can be addressed. FRHS provides effective training and implementation support that can help ensure your program success during the critical phase of implementation. We have experts who can maximize resources, detect bottlenecks before they affect your performance, and provide expert technical support for capacity building.

FRHS, through its action research programs, has developed some useful training materials and manuals that are field tested and found effective. These include: (1) Health Education Manual for Married Adolescent Girls, (2) Manual on Medicine Inventory Management and Record Keeping for NGO partners (3) HIV/AIDS Care & Support training manual for private practitioners, and (4) Training Manual on Data for Action: Concepts and Cases. At the request of clients, FRHS organizes training program mainly using those material.

HIV Case Management at Primary Level: An Information Booklet for Medical Practitioners, (2004)


Under the OXFAM's "HIV /AIDS Prevention and Care Programme for Rural and Tribal Youth in India" FRHS organized training for medical practitioners both from private and public in 13 districts of Orissa and Rajasthan. The aim of the training was to improve participant's knowledge and skills in syndromic case management, and understanding about HIV/AIDS care and treatment. Total 336 doctors underwent the training.

Across the sites, training programme was well accepted by the participants. At the end of the training workshops participants expressed their appreciation of the content of the training programme and the quality of resource persons (Training of Medical Practitioners for Syndromic Case Management of RTI/ STI and HIV/AIDS Primary Case Management: Training Workshop Report). Participants were of the opinion that the training workshops were quite informative and interesting. They particularly liked the case discussion and question answer sessions. Participants mentioned that the training would be of much help to them in directly dealing with the patients. Material developed and adapted under the project i.e. Training Kit, Resource Kit, and photo pamphlet on STI Syndromic Case Management by experts from St John's Medical college, Bangalore could be used by various state AIDS societies.

Capacity Building of Implementing Partners on Inventory Management and Medical Record Keeping :


This project was undertaken to build the inventory management capacity of the eleven NGO partners of OXFAM who conduct health camps for adolescents in four districts of Orissa and Rajasthan. Based on the assessment of existing capacity and identified gaps in management of medical commodities such as drugs and condoms, capacity building and corrective actions were undertaken (Capacity building of the Implementing Partners on Inventory Management and Medical Record Keeping. A Report). These are expected to help the partners overcome obstacles in inventory management and facilitate delivery of potent supplies to patients in right time in right quantity for right cost. A Good Practice manual on drug management has been developed under the project.
