By BBN Staff: Today, the Ministry of Health (MOH) unveiled its Human Resources for Universal Health Strategic Plan for 2019-2024.
The plan, entitled “A more efficient and robust health workforce by 2024,” focuses on achieving greater efficiency in the health sector by
focusing on five key areas. Those areas include strengthening leadership and consolidating governance in human resources for health; developing conditions and capacities in human resources for health to expand access to health coverage; increasing investment in human resources for health in order to pool qualified personnel, strengthening multi-sectoral cooperation; and strengthening health workforce partnership to respond to the needs of the health system.
Andrei Chell, Human Resources Health Focal Planner for the Ministry of Health explained that the strategic plan was birthed from the Human Resources for Health Situational Analysis 2015-2017.
“The situational analysis highlighted five major issues reported among our four health regions: staff shortage, uneven distribution of staff,
poor motivation, low retention, and gaps in skills and competencies.”
He went on to say that the MOH cross-matched those five issues with the World Health Organization’s conceptual framework for Human
Resource Development. The launch gathered several high-level officials within the MOH and also had Dr. Carissa F. Etienne, Director of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) and Regional Director for the Americas of the World Health Organization (WHO) as a special guest.
