Health workers count
Champion a movement for health workers:
- advocate that governments at all levels institute human resources for health (HRH) action plans to ensure that every person has access to a trained, supported, and equipped health worker
- work with training institutions and regulatory bodies to foster quality in health worker education so that every health worker is competent to provide quality care.
- work with professional associations to raise the profile of health workers, promote adherence to high standards of care, foster collaboration, and institute solid governance structures.
- press global organizations and other civil society actors to support health workforce strengthening efforts in accordance with government commitment to action plans.
- leverage our resources and expertise to turn HRH policy and commitments into global action.
- advocate for donors and governments to prioritize and scale up efforts to address HRH.
Support health workers and civil society to advocate for better recognition, support, security, and working conditions.
- work with governments, the Global Health Workforce Alliance, and other stakeholders to develop evidence-based frameworks to measure progress toward the goal of health worker access for every person.
- track and report periodically on progress of public HRH commitments made by governments, including legislation, policies, budgets, strategies, and official speeches.
- provide citizens and health workers with mechanisms to participate in accountability efforts.
- increase transparency of our programmatic and technical contributions to national HRH strategies, making our activities easier to track.
