HWPP Capacity Building Component
The purpose of the Healthier Wisconsin Partnership Program’s Capacity Building component is to ignite momentum for changemaking to improve health in Wisconsin. The component's goal is to:
expand on previously established collaborations
engage new stakeholders
build evaluation, administration and leadership capacities of individuals, organizations, coalitions and systems
The Capacity Building component provides many opportunities for the AHW Endowment and our stakeholders to drive change forward including:
discovering valuable tools and resources
convening networks of innovators through online and face-to-face interactions
igniting game-changer solutions through collaborative competitions
Together, these efforts will help to improve the health of the people of Wisconsin through strengthened community capacity, enhanced leadership abilities, sustainable results and dissemination of best practices.
The AHW Endowment has the unique and extraordinary opportunity to approach Wisconsin’s toughest public health challenges through wide-angled solutions knowing we can do more by working together than apart. The Capacity Building component is designed to go beyond simply providing funding and to be a catalyst for synergistic partnerships with the potential for designing real change.
