In two case studies, we (i) investigated the size, composition and structure of the current health work force; (ii) produced estimates of future human resource availability; (iii) estimated the quantity of human resources required significantly to scale up priority interventions towards 2015; and (iv) compared human resource availability and human resource requirements.
