On a recent trip to India, Renée Zandvliet, working with EuropeAid’s 'Civil Society and Local Authorities' unit, saw that civil society organisations (CSOs) often play a supportive role in improving the functioning and outreach of public health systems, as well as helping strengthen Human Resources for Health (HRH). As part of capacity4dev.eu's CSOs in India Week, she shares her views.
There are abundant stories about over-ambitious targets and badly chosen indicators in Performance Assessment Frameworks. So should we do away with PAFs as instruments for sector capacity development? No, says Willem Cornelissen from the Erasmus School of Economics, Erasmus University Rotterdam and trainer for the Aid Delivery Method Programme of EuropeAid, but there is ample room for improving their use in the social sectors and develop related capacities.

Following the success of the inaugural Humanitarian Innovation Conference,
the Humanitarian Innovation Project announces that #HIP2015 [1] will again
take place in Oxford in July 2015. The 2015 conference theme is
‘facilitating innovation’. As interest and dialogue around humanitarian
innovation continues to expand, conference participants are invited to
explore the challenges of creating an enabling environment for humanitarian
innovation.
 
In the lead up to the World Humanitarian Summit, a key focus of the
conference will explore how we enable innovation by and for affected
communities. What does it mean to take a human-centred approach seriously,
and to engage in co-creation with affected populations? It will also seek to
examine what facilitation means across the wider humanitarian ecosystem, and
how we can better convene the collective talents of people within and across
traditional and non-traditional humanitarian actors.

Meet Judith Muntahli. She was born in 1977 in Ilenga, a village in the Isoka district of Muchinga Province in the far north of Zambia. She and her husband are subsistence farmers with nine children. During her first pregnancy, Judith (pictured below) was bitten by a snake. But by the time she got to the hospital, infection had set in and her leg had to be amputated. With no access to contraception, Judith carried nine more pregnancies on one leg using crutches. Sadly, her 10th child died when he was a month old. 
Capacity4dev Team created a new Article 3 April 2015
It may seem curious to begin the fourth thematic month of the European Year for Development on Health by talking about roads, but as experience in Ethiopia has shown, improving transport infrastructure can make a big difference to people’s well-being.

"The United Nations has always had lots of targets, goals, and  declarations. You probably didn’t know, for example, that 2014 is the International Year of Family Farming and the International Year of Crystallography—or that you are currently  living through the Decade of Action for Road Safety.
