A set of 22 recommendations were developed by WHO to provide an overall guidance to countries that are considering to adopt or extending the task shifting approaches. These recommendations and guidelines aim to promote a formal framework that can support task shifting as a national strategy for organizing the health workforce.

The global recommendations and guidelines on task shifting propose the adoption or expansion of a task shifting approach as one method of strengthening and expanding the health workforce to rapidly increase access to HIV and other health services.
