Is there a need for a global HRH multi-sectoral platform within the new post 2015 framework? PHASE 2 Consultations

“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.

Public consultation to inform the Global Strategy on Human Resources for Health

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.

Call for papers on HRH investment

Human Resources for Health, in collaboration with the Global Health Workforce Alliance and the World Health Organization is pleased to invite you to submit a manuscript to a new thematic series entitled “Investment in human resources for health: impact on health outcomes and beyond”, which will seek to expand the evidence base on the health and broader socio-economic impact of health workforce investments. The findings of the thematic series will contribute to ongoing efforts to develop a Global Strategy on Human Resources for Health, to be considered by the World Health Assembly in May 2016. The deadline for submissions is 28 February 2015.
