    GHWA Task Force on Scaling Up Education and Training for Health Workers
  • Description
    [Excerpt from publisher] Introduction. Malawi's health human resources initiatives since the late 1990s provide a good example of a comprehensive national scale-up plan for the health workforce. Its Emergency Human Resources Plan (EHRP), introduced in 2004, has shown modest but promising results. Health worker attrition remains high and tutor supply low, but training capacity has been substantially expanded and Malawi is expected to begin meeting training output targets in 2008.
