The Alliance’s vision remains that “all people everywhere will have access to a skilled, motivated and supported health worker, within a robust health system”. While preserving the original core functions1, the Alliance has adapted its mission to the new environment in which it operates: “to advocate and catalyse country and global actions to address human resources for health challenges, contributing towards and beyond the health-related Millennium Development Goals and for universal health coverage.”

This Strategy covers activities to achieve its mandate during 2013–2016, and serves as a foundation for an exit strategy, envisaging a progressive transition of functions that should continue beyond this time frame to its members and partners, unless otherwise decided by the Board.
