APHA Annual Meeting and Exposition: Politics, Policy and Public Health


The APHA Annual Meeting & Exposition is the oldest and largest gathering of public health professionals in the world, attracting more than 13,000 national and international physicians, administrators, nurses, educators, researchers, epidemiologists, and related health specialists. APHA's meeting program addresses current and emerging health science, policy, and practice issues in an effort to prevent disease and promote health. This year, the meeting will be November 3–7 in Washington, DC and will have numerous sessions related to human resources for health such as:

  • health workforce scale-up in developing countries;
  • health worker satisfaction and intent to stay in Uganda, and its affect on Ministry of Health policies and strategies to improve health workforce capacity;
  • health workers who have left their jobs in Uganda: What drove them away, what could bring them back?;
  • building human resource capacity in ministries of health by improving personnel systems;
  • building capacity in formative evaluation: The role of community health workers;
  • integrating community health workers in a faith based community health center; and
  • strengthening the capacity of nurses in developing countries to deliver HIV/AIDS care: using participatory methods to identify needs and design training.
