Human Resources as Key Factor in Health Services

Bagamoyo, Tanzania, 22-25 October 2007: "The human resources situation in the health sector is in a severe crisis, according to many organisations, including the World Health Organisation (WHO). The WHO estimates that there is a shortage of 4.3 million health workers worldwide who are required in order to reach the Millennium Development Goals in 2015. In Africa alone, the shortage is estimated at 2.3 million.

The Personnel Agency for German Catholics for International Cooperation (AGEH) and the German Catholic Bishops’ Organisation for Development Cooperation (Misereor) jointly organised a workshop in Bagamoyo, Tanzania, on 22-25 October 2007, to address this crisis. Participants, including German Development Workers, their local counterparts and representatives from Catholic and Ecumenical Organisations from eleven African and Asian countries, attended the workshop."
