Online Consultation on the WHO Global Strategy on Human Resources for Health: Workforce 2030 (NOW CLOSED)

The purpose of the Global Strategy on Human Resources for Health: Workforce 2030 (GSHRH) is to support WHO, Member States and partners - at global, regional and country levels- to address health workforce challenges to progress towards Universal Health Coverage. The strategy brings together state of the art knowledge and evidence while building on a decade of experiences and lessons learned in implementing health workforce policies at country level. It also reflects on emerging evidence that investments in the health workforce can trigger broader socio-economic development with positive spill-over effects on education, gender equality and on the creation of decent employment opportunities and sustainable economic growth.

Development of the strategy

Since early 2014, the Global Health Workforce Alliance (GHWA) coordinated a broad-based global consultation, through the development of 8 thematic papers to collate evidence in support of the global strategy on HRH. Comments received from the Consultation have been summarized into a "synthesis” document which has informed the zero draft of the WHO Global Strategy on Human Resources for Health: Workforce 2030

The zero draft of the Global Strategy on Human Resources for Health: Workforce 2030 forms the basis of consultations with WHO Regions, Member States and other partners in the period July – August 2015. The draft will also be discussed at various global health events as well as a number of WHO regional technical consultations. This global dialogue will inform the continuing improvement of the draft and a final version to be submitted to the WHO Executive Board in January 2016.

Global Consultation - (NOW CLOSED)

We are now inviting feedback on the draft strategy via our online consultation. The consultation is open to Member States of the WHO, institutions, networks, civil society groups, individuals and relevant organizations with interest in human resources for health.
