Capacity Building

The Division of Community Health’s Global Framework requires systems integration to increase person, provider and community capacity to improve efficiency of provider systems, and the self-efficacy capacity of individuals and communities within non-wealth and low-wealth communities and populations.  

The division acts in different roles depending on the needs and wants of the community and providers. Division capacity building includes cross-sectoral and interdisciplinary teams, as well as delivering specific services to meet a particular need.
