Finalization of regional guidelines for health workforce (HWF) strategic planning and HWF database
AbstractDescription: The Fifty-ninth session of the WHO Regional Committee for South-East Asia, held in Dhaka, Bangladesh in August 2006, endorsed the "Regional Strategic Plan for Health Workforce Development". To implement the strategic plan, it is necessary that countries develop plans for development of their health workforce, based on the standard guidelines developed by the WHO Regional Office for South-East Asia. A meeting of experts from Member countries of the South-East Asia (SEA) Region, organized in Kathmandu, Nepal in September 2008 adopted a scientific approach to formulate the Regional Guidelines for Health Workforce Strategic Planning and HWF Database. It is hoped that the guidelines will help Member States of the SEA Region in drawing up their respective strategic plans for HWF development.
