The NHWA presented in this Handbook contains a set of 90 core indicators, divided over ten modules, that aim to provide concise information on the health workforce situation and trends of a country. The NHWA contains indicators of relevance to country, regional and global reporting across the spectrum of health workforce priorities. It is primarily based on a comprehensive health labour market framework for UHC. The purpose of the NHWA is to facilitate the standardization of a health workforce information system for interoperability, as well as to support tracking HRH policy performance towards universal health coverage.
