New toolkit to help countries develop, monitor and strengthen HRH plans

The Alliance has compiled a new HRH toolkit that brings together a set of resources that are in use for various aspects of country level HRH development, including situation analysis, planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation. The toolkit is meant to help the countries in developing, implementing, and monitoring evidence-based HRH plans. It may also be used by those wishing to review or validate their current HRH plans and interventions.

This toolkit has been complied in response to a number of requests by countries and other stakeholders, for user-friendly tools for carrying out required interventions in addressing the Human Resources for Health (HRH) challenges through implementing the Country Coordination and Facilitation (CCF) principles and process. It is expected to support countries and other stakeholders’ efforts to develop or augment the capacity to effectively lead, plan and manage their health workforce in an integrated way within their overall health system development. It should be seen as a work in progress and users are encouraged to share their views and experiences on its use as well as suggest improvements in terms of tools to be added or removed.

The toolkit is being provided on this web site as well as on CD-ROM. To request a CD-ROM copy, please send an email to
