Analyzing Health Labor Markets

In order to expand and effectively use the health workforce to support HIV service delivery in low- and middle-income countries, decision-makers must understand what drives demand for and supply of health workers. Examination of country human resources for health (HRH) labor markets can help guide decision-making and maximize investments made by country governments and donors, such as The U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and the Global Fund for AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria (GFATM).

 

By studying the health labor market in several countries, HRH2030 will equip government ministries, PEPFAR, and GFATM with the data they need to guide HRH decision-making.

 

HRH2030 will assess select countries’ health labor markets to:

  • Understand the demand, supply, and budget factors that determine a country’s ability to expand and retain its health workforce, including absorption of health workers currently supported by external donors
  • Identify opportunities to enhance efficiency of the existing private and public sector health workforce
