Strengthening Educational Capacity through Context-Relevant Curriculum Design and Evaluation

There is an acute shortage of health-care workers in Sudan. The Academy of Health Sciences was created to prepare health-care professionals in order to restore and ultimately maintain the requisite skills-mix. This necessitates transformative education using a context-relevant curriculum. A context-relevant curriculum is one that is feasible, consistent with the mission of the educational institution, and responsive to the communities of interest. This article describes a partnership to strengthen the local capacity of health workforce educators. The article describes one of a series of faculty development workshops, with this first aimed at the skills to develop and evaluate context-relevant curricula using community midwifery curriculum as an exemplar.
