At AHP we believe in quality people – like the professionals we employ to work in local hospitals. Similarly, our internal team comprises a set of highly qualified professionals, driven to make a difference in African HR in health. The team profile includes professional recruiters, HR specialists, doctors, nurses, professors, researchers, administrators, marketers and business professionals.
Recruitment is supported by creative award-winning marketing campaigns involving local and international advertising, conference attendance and media promotions, as well as tapping a growing social network through online portals, alumni and a massive health worker and manager database.
Orientation includes clinical, cultural and logistical support. Health worker support is aligned with government policies and NGO programme commitments and focuses on improving retention through continued professional development, troubleshooting critical retention issues, and working to fix the systems that are creating recurring issues that impact on retention.
This includes understanding the drivers of career choice, translating policy into practice and providing on-the-ground resources to help identify and unblock bottlenecks.
This allows AHP to provide detailed intelligence to partners and funders and to continuously improve what we are doing.
