The formulation of national human resources for health (HRH) policies and strategies requires an evidence-based planning to rationalize decisions. A range of tools and resources exist to assist countries in developing a national HRH strategic plan.

The objective of this paper is to take stock of the available methods and tools for health workforce planning and projections, and to describe the processes and resources needed to undertake such an exercise.
