Workload Indicators of Staffing Need (WISN)




World Health Organization


The Workload Indicators of Staffing Need (WISN) method is a human resource management tool. It provides health managers a systematic way to make staffing decisions in order to manage their valuable human resources.

This revised user manual takes into account the decentralized nature of health management in many countries and is intended for the wider range of health system managers.

The software manual provides an overview of the software application’s features and instructions for managing data and reports.

The case studies demonstrate the relevance and versatility of WISN in Indonesia, Mozambique and Uganda. [adapted from publisher]
