  • Description
    [Excerpt from publisher] The purpose of the Regional Strategy is to provide Member States with a range of policy options and strategic actions from which to choose. It must be emphasized, however, that the Regional Strategy cannot and should not replace the need for country-specific strategies aimed at building a competent and supported health workforce and promoting equitable access to quality health services. The Strategy's framework for action is comprised of five interrelated strategic objectives organized around three key result areas, with suggested national actions to achieve them and WHO enabling responses. The key result areas are: (1) a health workforce that is responsive to population health needs, or demand; (2) effective and efficient workforce development, deployment and retention, or supply; and (3) workforce governance and management.
