AbstractThis document highlights the progress made in the South-East Asia Region following the adoption of resolution SEA/RC59/R6 on strengthening the health workforce in South-East Asia by the Regional Committee for South-East Asia in Dhaka, Bangladesh in September 2006. Many of the activities have been specified in the South-East Asia Regional Strategic Plan for Human Resource Development which has been finalized following endorsement by the Fifty-ninth session of the Regional Committee. The overall goal was ensuring equitable access to effective health services through an adequate and balanced distribution of sufficient, competent, and highly motivated health workforce. The Committee also requested the Regional Director to facilitate several actions in relation to regional health workforce development. The progress made by the Region in this regard is mentioned in detail in the document. The attached working paper is submitted to the High-Level Preparatory (HLP) Meeting for its review and recommendations. These recommendations will be submitted to the Sixty-second Session of the Regional Committee for its consideration.
