Strengthening Regional Training Centres in South Africa

I-TECH is supporting Regional Training Centres (RTCs) across provinces to increase their capacity to coordinate in-service trainings, with an emphasis on reaching the 90-90-90 targets.

I-TECH will continue strengthening the capacity of RTC management to coordinate, consolidate, implement and evaluate training activities. I-TECH will continue to support the rollout of national priority programs such as Adult Primary Care; training initiatives to enable nurses to deliver tests and offer services, and develop the capacity of RTCs to promote alternative service delivery models, particularly adherence clubs. I-TECH will support NDoH through the RTC to roll out a national recruitment and retention strategy and in-service learning strategy, to ensure appropriate human resources for health within public health service. In addition, I-TECH will provide continuous technical support for the development of a distance learning program and support recruitment and placement of technical personnel at NDoH to support RTCs and offer logistical support for quarterly training review stakeholders meetings.
