Human resources for universal health coverage: a call for papers

1 February 2013 - Geneva | The Bulletin of the World Health Organization will publish a theme issue on Human Resources for Health and universal health coverage (UHC) to provide an opportunity to identify the changes in HRH investment, production, deployment and retention required to achieve UHC. Its publication will coincide with the Third Global Forum on Human Resources for Health, to be held in Recife, Brazil, on 10–13 November 2013.

The Bulletin issue will feature commissioned as well as independently submitted articles that will set the scene for and generate innovative thinking on HRH for UHC. GHWA and WHO welcome contributions on the Forum’s general theme, five sub-themes and tracks, especially those emphasizing aspects of HRH directly related to achieving UHC.
