In 2016, UNICEF published its Health System Strengthening (HSS) strategy to meet its goal of ending preventable maternal, newborn and child deaths and promoting child health and development. UNICEF identified the need for staff HSS capacity building and the Nossal Institute was contracted to deliver a blended learning program. To date, 199 UNICEF staff from 70 countries completed the course. We describe the development, delivery and evaluation of this innovative learning program, and introduce the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) developed from this program.
