  7. 7. Findings Relevance, Efficacy and Effectiveness Facilitation training was perceived as relevant, useful and beneficial by participants In terms of effectiveness, almost all participants felt capable of facilitating what they were trained in and reported using the Outreach resources to facilitate content with the general public, predominantly with individuals in clinics In terms of relevance, participants felt the training was useful, as they learnt new skills. Many participants noted using the Mindset material in their daily work Sustainability In terms of sustainability, most participants were doing the same work as when they were trained, and were using the knowledge and skills Many participants plan on remaining in the health sector Currently, half of the participants use the content received in training to deliver information to others Funded by: Hosted by: Coordinated by:
  8. 8. Conclusions This initiative aims to up-lift and up-skill facilitators, who are then expected to facilitate content to others Participants acknowledge receiving facilitation skills and using these skills in their work Their reported plans to remain in the health sector imply that the initiative is sustainable and perceived as relevant and effective Funded by: Hosted by: Coordinated by:
  9. 9. Recommendations Recommendations in 2 main areas: Revision of Mindset Health Outreach Strategy The inclusion of follow up sessions in the training strategy is recommended as it would likely enhance the initiative’s sustainability Revision of M&E Processes Facilitators that are trained during the Facilitation Capacity Building should be monitored more closely over a period of time to gain a greater depth of information regarding sustainability A comprehensive list of facilitators who receive the resources needs to be maintained in order to track their facilitation of other individuals Funded by: Hosted by: Coordinated by:
