PERFORM2scale takes a highly effective, management-strengthening intervention and up-scales it for use in other health systems.

The original PERFORM project used action research to improve health systems’ performance in Ghana, Uganda and Tanzania. It strengthened the capacity of district health managers over an 18-month period, helping management teams to develop human resource management and health systems strategies to improve performance.

PERFORM2Scale is building on the success of that intervention, and is scaling up this approach in Malawi, Uganda and Ghana through a coalition of seven partners.

Progress to date

PERFORM2Scale is progressing well, with our country partners now actively working with their chosen study districts. We’ll be uploading details of their progress and the challenges they are addressing as the interventions get properly under way.

In the meantime, follow us on Twitter for regular updates and other development news.

The project is funded through the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, and will run until early 2022.
