Progress and Results Achieved

Results achieved at the end of the project in May 2010 include the following. The National Health Sciences Training Institute (INFSS) has adequate buildings and facilities. Its library is operational and better stocked with books and other works. Of the INFSS’s 18 study programs, 7 have been revised using the skills-based approach. The first cohort using this approach graduated in 2009. This cohort included 7 men in radiological technology and 14 people in health and sanitation technology (2 women and 12 men). The proportion of women students rose from 35,2 percent in 2005 (out of 750 students) to 48 percent in 2009 (out of 1,298 students). Finally, 115 women received their degree in 2009, in the INFSS’s 18 streams, or 42 percent of graduates.
