Health Labor Market Analysis: An approach for informing strategic investments in the health workforce

Health Labor Market Analysis: An approach for informing strategic investments in the health workforce

Webinar (September 5, 2017, 58 min): Why do low- and middle- income countries face health worker shortages? Can they afford to hire more health workers in the future? Can they use the existing workforce more efficiently? How can leaders increase health workers’ motivation — and keep them on the job? Health labor market analysis provides the methods and tools for answering these and other questions related to the demand, supply, and efficiencies of the health workforce.

Co-hosted by HRH2030 and Emerging Voices for Global Health (EV4GH), this webinar provides an overview and highlights the importance of health labor market analysis for reaching global health workforce goals. Presenters share successes and challenges from their own experiences conducting these analyses in Malawi, with PEPFAR support, and in other countries.
