Resource Spotlight: One Million More - Mobilizing the African Diaspora Healthcare Professionals for Capacity Building in Africa
One Million More presents some of the interventions, debates, discussions and conclusions of a conference held in London from 21–22 March 2006. The conference was organized to create a stimulating and interactive forum to discuss the crisis in human resources for health in an effort to influence national, regional and international policies for the promotion of sustainable skills capacity in Africa and to engage the African Diaspora in innovative, practical steps to move the agenda forward.
The report describes the nature of the problem, while examining the causes and possible ways forward, concluding with recommendations on how to plug the gap of one million healthcare professionals needed by Africa today to reach its Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) for health.
