Country Coordination and Facilitation (CCF)
In response to the urgent need for enhanced coordination of human resources for health (HRH), the Alliance, through a consultative process, has developed Country Coordination and Facilitation (CCF) - Principles and Process on HRH for an integrated health workforce response.
The CCF approach requires establishing and supporting the necessary governance structures for intersectoral coordination and collaboration to plan, implement and monitor health workforce development and retention at the country level, while working through one national HRH plan. It also entails processes assisting priority countries to ensure that sustainable, motivated and skilled health workers are available to meet health care needs and working with partners to ensure that funding and technical expertise is available for programmes.

Partnering for Progress: regional consensus-building meetings
The CCF was conceptualized in 2009. In an international effort to cultivate and expand the CCF strategies, four regional consensus-building meetings were held on HRH in Accra, Ouagadougou, Hanoi and San Salvador in 2009 and 2010, bringing together a diverse group of stakeholders from numerous countries. The lessons shared and best practices discussed at these meetings were compiled intot a "consolidated meeting report" available below.
