Alliance Knowledge Centre upgrade

Alliance resource spotlight March 2011

The Alliance has recently added one hundred new resources to the knowledge centre. Launched last year with enhanced browsing facilities, the Alliance Knowledge Centre aims to provide HRH policy makers, researchers, Alliance members and partners and all those working on resolving the HRH crisis with the latest resources related to the crisis in low- and middle-income countries, focusing primarily on the following three categories of resources:

  • High-profile and top-level peer reviewed publications or guidance documents that can serve as overviews or introductory readings on priority topics, or provide clear policy guidance (for example systematic reviews, seminal research or policy articles, articles reprinted as Public Health classics, WHO guidelines etc.);
  • Documents describing the specific situation of individual HRH priority countries (HRH country profiles; national health workforce plans and strategies; case studies of particular interventions conducted in a country, etc.);
  • Relevant documents produced and made available by members and partners of the Global Health Workforce Alliance.

With a membership of over 300 members and partners working directly or indirectly on HRH, the Alliance is happy to host original resources produced by its members and share it with the community through the knowledge centre. Please take this opportunity and submit your products using the contribution form.

With the purpose of fostering knowledge exchange among the HRH community, the Alliance is proud to announce its partnership with the HRH Global Resource Center (GRC). The GRC is a knowledge management service of CapacityPlus, a USAID-funded project led by IntraHealth International, both organizations being established partners of the Alliance.

The GRC digital library is a comprehensive knowledge gateaway centralizing a wide range of resources directly related to HRH issues. It strategically complements the Alliance knowledge centre by providing additional readings on specific thematic areas.

In addition, the GRC provides:

  • subject guides, user friendly compilations of topical information on core thematic HRH areas
  • Resource Spotlights highlighting key prodcuts
  • HRH Leaders in Action Interviews

In the coming months, the partnership with the GRC will evolve and more and more linkages will be established between the two complementary centres.
