Training module on development of health workforce strategic plans
AbstractThe health workforce (HWF) is primarily engaged in providing health care to the community and is the most important asset of health systems. Health systems can be strengthened only through effective HWF planning, development and management. The HWF plays a pivotal role in achieving positive health outcomes. WHO has developed Regional Guidelines for the Development of the Health Workforce Strategic Plan in countries of the South-East Asia Region. There is a need to hold a series of trainings for planners and policy-makers to make them efficient at using these guidelines. For this, a pool of master trainers (facilitators) are needed who can deliver such training in a uniform manner. This training module on development of the health workforce strategic plans has been prepared to help the master trainers (facilitators) organize such types of training in their respective countries.
