To avoid serious health worker shortages and mismatch of skills, we’re supporting the decision-makers who plan and allocate resources for the future health workforce to better match health worker availability with ever-shifting population needs.
While USAID and other global health leaders strive to promote healthier lives for all, shifting disease dynamics and population growth in low- and middle-income countries pose ever-increasing stress on national health systems. As a critical piece of the health system, a strong health workforce — with the right skills and in the right places — is key to alleviating these pressures. However, leaders at all levels face a global health workforce shortage and, in many cases, they lack the data and tools needed to optimize the existing workforce and advocate for more resources. HRH2030 aims to work with partners across sectors to find sustainable solutions to these challenges, furthering USAID’s vision of sustained, equitable access to responsive, high-quality health services.
