“The Ebola outbreak is a clarion call to the local, national, regional and global community to step up efforts to build national capacity for ensuring health workers on the ground, at the core of resilient, integrated health systems”, says Dr. Sigrun Møgedal, former Chair of GHWA and HRH champion, who has recently been appointed by the Global Health Workforce Alliance (GHWA) to develop an options analysis for multi-sectoral HRH governance beyond 2016. The review and analysis will be discussed by GHWAs Executive Board at its 18th Board Meeting in February 2015.
At the Sixty-seventh World Health Assembly in May 2014, the World Health Organization was requested to develop a Global Strategy on Human Resources for health, to be presented to the Executive Board in January 2016 and finally to the Sixty-ninth World Health Assembly in May 2016.
