Resource Spotlight: Health Workforce Innovation: Accelerating Private Sector Responses to the Human Resources for Health Crisis
This Global Health Workforce Alliance report identifies non-governmental organizations, faith-based organizations, not-for-profit, and for-profit organizations that are innovating to cope with the inadequate supply of healthcare workers in resource-poor settings. The report describes linkages to factors in the social and business environment that the workforce innovators report have both potentiated and constrained their reach and scope.
The authors follow a line of inquiry which recognizes innovations wither or flourish, not solely on the merits of the product or service itself, but interdependently with the surrounding complementary organizations and environment, both political and social, that influence the innovators' outcomes.
