Situational Analysis: Kenya Social Welfare Workforce

In recent years there has been increased emphasis across Africa on the social welfare workforce (SWW) and the pivotal role it plays in service delivery to orphans and vulnerable children (OVC).  In order to reinforce and augment work done to date, a conceptual framework was used for creating a comprehensive strategy for workforce strengthening, addressing three broad categories: planning, developing, and supporting the SWW. Using this framework as a lens through which to look at the human resources (HR) available, the Government of Kenya, in collaboration with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) through CapacityPlus, has undertaken a situational analysis (SITAN) to better understand the current state of Kenya’s SWW.
