Organizing Work Better
Family planning and other health care organizations in developing countries increasingly must do more with the same resources, and sometimes with fewer. Reorganizing work processes offers one common-sense way to help staff members at all levels cope with growing demands. Whether you are a clinic manager, front-line provider, program supervisor, or district-level manager, you can improve how work is organized and performed. Often, simple changes enable organizations to serve clients better, offer more satisfying work to the staff, operate more effectively, cut waste, and even reduce or recover costs.
