Support for the establishment of an autonomous continuing training system in clinical practice and in the management of health services



The continuous training of health personnel in North Kivu is one of our PASIAA project’s work areas. A training center, the CFNK, was built and opened in Goma, whose approaches are based on active pedagogy and support for change.
