Abstract: Strengthening health workforce education and training is necessary to produce and develop health-care providers in adequate numbers with required competencies and appropriate mix of skills who can successfully deal with health challenges and deliver effective and responsive health services. This may call for reforming the organizational, institutional and instructional structure of health workforce education and training systems in Member States. It is also imperative for countries to devote more attention to training and education of community-based health workers to further bolster the primary health-care approach to health services. An effective community-based health workforce can ensure that essential health interventions reach the "unreached" population to achieve universal health coverage. An expert group meeting has been convened to draft the regional strategy on strengthening health workforce education and training in the WHO South-East Asia Region. The regional strategy, after adaptation, should help the countries in the South-East Asia Region to strengthen their health workforce education and training.
