Links to the health workforce crisis
The Health Resource Centre (HRC) of HLSP works to improve health and health systems in low and middle income countries by providing high quality advice, expertise and knowledge. Services include: a)b) c) d)
- monitoring and evaluation of health programmes and projects,
- support to policy formulation and strategic planning,
- programme and project scoping, and
- design and appraisal, and the organization of events such as conferences, strategy launches, training workshops and retreats.
The HRC undertook a mid-term review of the six-year Health Training project that is being implemented by Norwegian Church Aid. The project works towards counteracting the crisis of shortage of qualified personnel the health sector is facing in Malawi. The HRC reviewed literature, designed an evaluation methodology and conducted field research to assess and analyse the project, providing results and recommendations. The HRC assisted in the organization of a DFID continuing professional development day on health workers. The aims of the day were to review the state of the international response to the global shortage of health workers, particularly in light of G8 and Call to Action commitments, identifying DFID's role in facilitating progress at country, regional and global levels and provide an update on latest evidence/best practice on how to address the global shortage of health workers.
HLSP joined the Alliance in 2007 as an implementing partner.
