Human Resource Management Toolkit. Feb 2014
Developed to assist managers in day-to-day human resource management:
The human resources for health management toolkit is a step-by-step guide for health planners and managers to improve the planning and management of human resources (HR) for the health system as a whole and within health facilities. The HR modules provide step-by-step guidance on how to administrate HR and to affect HR Planning, HR Management and HR Development. Facing the shortage of qualified HR practitioners, the toolkit was developed from a wide range of sources to provide a reference document to assist HR officers and managers with HR related functions. The toolkit consists of 10 Modules.

Health Service Delivery
Training Programme for Quality Improvement (QI) for Maternal and Newborn Health (May 2014)
In order to initiate on-going Quality Improvement (QI) processes in the PRRINN-MNCH supported Emergency Obstetric & Newborn Care facilities (EmONC) in 3 target states, the programme organised a series of three workshops for representatives from these health facilities. Each workshop lasted between two and four days. The purpose of these QI workshops was to build capacity to improve quality of care of MNCH services on an on-going basis by establishing QI teams and the introduction of QI methods. The workshops were conducted at 3 monthly intervals so that participants gradually built up their knowledge and skills for QI and applied these within their own health facilities, assessing quality of care, identifying quality of care issues, analysing the root causes, and initiating QI activities. Different approaches and methods for QI were introduced and the EmONC facilities have formed QI teams, which are leading the QI processes in the health facilities.
Developing a State Minimum Service Package (Aug 2013)
There are very few tools available that demonstrate how to implement a Minimum Service Package (MSP) or how it is intended to function. The PRRINN-MNCH programme of support to several Nigerian states has developed a series of three guides that include tools to define, develop and calculate costs for an MSP, as well as a software programme to determine human resource requirements.
