Human Resources for Health Observer - Issue No. 7
Over the last decade, it has become increasingly clear that the health workforce deficit is an important obstacle to achieving the Millennium Development Goals, and that significant investment is needed to scale up the health workforce. This paper reflects an initial review of aid effectiveness in relation to human resources for health. It asks whether the recent aid effectiveness agenda, as expressed in commitments made to the Paris Declaration, is responding appropriately to the specific needs of HRH and countries’ efforts to strengthen and scale up human resources.
