Capacity Strengthening

The goal of The DHS Program's capacity strengthening program is to strengthen the capacity of implementing partners by equipping them with the tools, resources, skills, and knowledge necessary for conducting household or facility-based surveys. To help guide and monitor capacity strengthening efforts, The DHS Program has developed scalable programs and resources for implementing agencies to use to close statistical skill gaps. The DHS Program’s approach to capacity strengthening is guided by its global capacity strengthening strategy, which is based on USAID's Human and Institutional Capacity Development whole-systems approach.
