A Panel Discussion on the Critical Link Between Human Resources for Health and Meeting the MDG6

The need to recognize human resources for health (HRH) as a crucial element in the global AIDS response was explored in depth at this side event to the High Level Meeting on AIDS, in June 2011 in New York. The conclusion was that without sufficient human resources, countries’ efforts to scale up comprehensive AIDS services will not be sustainable, making it impossible to reach the MDG6, focusing on combating HIV/AIDS, malaria, and other diseases.
