Abstract: The Regional Strategic Plan on Health Workforce Development, which specifically identifies priority activities to be initiated by the WHO and Member Countries will guide and facilitate country initiatives on health workforce development. WHO is totally committed to play the lead role in catalyzing the implementation of this strategic plan. The challenges related to health workforce in countries of the South-East Asia Region (SEAR) include overcoming shortages, geographical and skill mix imbalances, keeping pace with advancing knowledge and competencies and improving skills of health workforce management. Realizing the increasing negative impacts of these issues and challenges, Member Countries of the WHO SEAR adopted a resolution on Strengthening the health workforce in South-East Asia (SEA/RC59/R6) while the Dhaka Declaration was endorsed at the 24th Health Ministers' Meeting in 2006. The Regional Strategic Plan is the outcome of intense discussions and deliberations with the Member countries which was finalized at a consultation held in Bali, Indonesia, in 2006.
