The overall goal of National Health Training Center (NHTC) is to build technical and management capacity of health service providers at all levels to deliver quality health care services. NHTC is the apex body for capacity development for health professionals employed by the Ministry of Health. It plans, coordinates and delivers training needs of all departments, divisions and centres of the Ministry of Health (MoH) through:

  • Organising training activities to address the need of quality health services providers in different level of health facilities.
  • Enhancing training capacities of government, non-government and private sectors training sites
  • Ensuring quality of training programs using different mechanisms in adherence to national standards.
  • Adopting and promoting innovative training approaches
  • Strengthening mechanism and capacity for post training follow-up and support.

NHTC aims to enhance its implementation capacity through optimal use of information technology, adopting new and evidence based training approaches and by post-training support of service providers. It also aims to strengthen pre-service education so that health workers acquire basic knowledge and skills during their academic courses and reduce the burden of resources in providing in-service training.
