Human Resources for Health: Strengthening health systems - assuring service delivery - improving health

Getting the right workers with the right mix of skills to areas where they are needed most is key to improving health service delivery outcomes Sub-Saharan Africa will not meet any of the health Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by 2015 if current rates of progress continue. This is primarily due to weak health systems characterised by the limited capacity, low motivation, absenteeism and overall severe shortage of health workers at all levels.  This paper highlights some of the reasons behind the HR crisis and presents the experiences, lessons learned and future strategies of SolidarMed to strengthen the health workforce in SSA.
