Since inception of the program in 2009, training and recruitment of local staﬀ has been at the center of Jembi’s support to national institutions in Mozambique in partnership with UEM, CRDS (Regional Center of Training in Health), and the Ministry of Labour. This is to ensure local ownership and project sustainability. According to data from SIFo, Mozambique’s national information systems for health sector training, as of March of 2020, Jembi has supported the training of 2,666 health sector professionals, of which 1,474 were trained in basic module and SIS-MA, 231 in SIS-ROH, 58 in SIS-H, 335 in ICD-10, 16 in DHIS 2 Academies, 202 in SESP-SESP, 252 in Basic IT, 16 in Project Management, 25 in the Mid-level health statistics course, 9 in advanced Excel, and 48 in other courses. Jembi aims to continue building local capacity in the health and social sector for students and young professionals. These eﬀorts led to the formalization of our cooperation with several national institutions through the signing of agreements and Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) during the 2017-2018 period. The institutions include:
- The National Institute of Employment, which operates under the Ministry of Labour, Employment and Social Security,
- The University Eduardo Mondlane and the Polytechnic University of Mozambique,
- The National Directorate of Human Resources in the Ministry of Health,
- The Regional Centre for Health Development (CRDS-Maputo).
