Highlight This Month: Capacity Building

The CTC Programme in Mogadishu became operational in September of 2009, and over the last 3 years has developed significant technical capacity. The programme was initially designed using Valid’s CTC approach, and has been customized over time with the integration of UNICEF’s IYCF, EPI, and Nutrition, Health and Hygiene Promotion (NHHP) modules. The technical capacity of the programme currently consists of a team of 23 individuals that have received training as trainers (ToTs) and are now certified in the following specializations:

  • 9 ToTs in OTP/SFP by Valid International;
  • 5 ToTs in Community Mobilization for CTC/CMAM by Valid;
  • 4 ToTs in Stabilization Centre (SC) Management by UNICEF;
  • 2 ToTs in IYCF Counselling by UNICEF;
  • 2 ToTs in NHHP by UNICEF; and
  • 1 ToT in EPI by UNICEF

With this team, led by a recently appointed Training Manager, SAACID has begun a full-time training regime that provides training for all new staff in the CTC approach to community management of acute malnutrition, specialized training in the above for more advanced nurses, and quarterly refresher training for all staff and outreach workers. This month alone 21 nurses were trained to become IYCF counsellors, 550 outreach workers received refresher training and training on the importance of breastfeeding and immunizations, and 68 site support staff received refresher training and training on age identification techniques.
