Human resources for health
Countries in the Western Pacific Region are working hard to address the challenges of developing and sustaining a health workforce that is sufficient, competent, responsive and adequately supported to meet population needs.
WHO’s key areas for support include:
- Health workforce strategic response to evolving and unmet health service needs
- Health workforce education, training and continuing competence
- Health workforce utilization, management and retention
- Health workforce governance, leadership and partnerships for sustained HRH contributions to improved populations outcomes
