January 2011
Summary:
This report represents the first attempt to track progress in implementing the Kampala Declaration and Agenda for Global Action, and provides a snapshot of the human resources for health policy and governance situation in the priority countries affected by severe health workforce challenges. The report highlights areas of progress as well as those that, conversely, require increased attention. The Progress Report focuses on how countries are doing in planning and coordinating their health workforce interventions, at their efforts in relation to information systems, education and retention strategies, and investment decisions. In addition, this analysis of key health workforce policies has been complemented with case stories submitted by countries and organizations that illustrate, through a more qualitative approach, the progress in implementing the Agenda for Global Action in the priority countries.
