Are you currently targeting other specific populations, locations, or markets for your innovation? If so, where and why?
During 2012, AHP plans to expand the Recruitment Programme into Lesotho and Swaziland. AHP assisted with foreign recruitment for these countries in 2010 and both governments have expressed an interest in working with AHP again. The need for nurses and other health workers remains critical in these countries and it is for this reason that AHP plans to re-expand into these regions in 2012.
What type of operating environment and internal organizational factors make your innovation successful?
AHP offers a professional and innovative service to address the shortage of health workers. Our work is characterised by integrity, passion and unity in the delivery of pragmatic solutions to staffing gaps.
