Governance and planning
Developing a health workforce which can offer primary to tertiary services requires a well-functioning governance infrastructure. Health workforce assessment, policy development, planning and monitoring require dialogue between stakeholders from government and non-government partners who contribute to creating a sustainable and responsive workforce. WHO responds to these challenges through:
- strengthening governance capacities to address health workforce challenges,
- improving the global information and evidence base, and
- facilitating the development of health workforce observatories and other cooperative mechanisms for sharing experiences, information and evidence to support policy decision making.
