Health workers for all and all for health workers An Agenda for Global Action
This Agenda for Global Action originates from the Kampala Declaration and provides the overarching global framework for a coordinated global, regional and national response to the worldwide shortage and maldistribution of health workers, moving towards universal access to quality health care and improved health outcomes.
Built on the vision that the vision that ‘all people, everywhere, shall have access to a skilled, motivated and facilitated health worker within a robust health system’, the Agenda for Global Action outlines six interconnected strategies necessary to address the health workforce crisis.
- Building coherent national and global leadership for health workforce solutions
- Ensuring capacity for an informed response based on evidence and joint learning
- Scaling up health worker education and training
- Retaining an effective, responsive and equitably distributed health workforce
- Managing the pressures of the international health workforce market and its impact on migration
- Securing additional and more productive investment in the health workforce
