HRIS Strengthening in Namibia

Pam McQuide and Paul Ruwoldt presented Capacity’s HRIS Strengthening methodology and solution to the Namibia Ministry of Health and Social Services (MOHSS) August 24th. Representatives from the Office of the Prime Minister, CDC, MSH, I-TECH, and the USAID/Namibia Mission attended the session. Participants expressed a high level of interest in the presentation and agreed the MOHSS needed the type of functionality and integration provided by Capacity’s HRIS modules. As a result of the session, representatives from the MOHSS agreed to convene a follow up stakeholder meeting to document the ministry’s most critical HRIS needs and to use this as a formal request for assistance from Capacity. A proposal to develop and deploy an HRIS was also included in the draft COP07 for Namibia.
