Health Workforce Challenges: Lessons from Country Experiences




High-Level Forum on the Health MDGs




This report is aimed at policy makers both in developing country governments and in international agencies. It was a key input to the second meeting of the High Level Forum on the Health Millennium Development Goals held in Abuja in December 2004. It was written to raise awareness of a looming crisis in human resources for health confronting most countries in sub-Saharan Africa, and to help serve as a catalyst for action to avert this crisis. It is hoped that it goes beyond illustrating the potential gravity of the impending crisis in human resources for health, to demonstrating that concrete actions can and in many cases are being taken to address the problem.
