The HRH Action Framework is a web-based tool designed to assist governments and health managers to develop and implement strategies to achieve an effective and sustainable health workforce.

By using a comprehensive approach, the Framework can help address staff shortages, uneven distribution of staff, gaps in skills and competencies, low retention and poor motivation, among other challenges.

The HRH Action Framework analyses issues and provides recommendations according to six action fields (HR Management Systems, Leadership, Partnership, Finance, Education and Policy) and four phases (Situational Analysis, Planning, Implementation and Monitoring & Evaluation).
