The Global Strategy on Human Resources for Health: Workforce 2030 (GSHRH) will support WHO, Member States and partners - at global, regional and country levels- to address health workforce challenges to progress towards Universal Health Coverage.
Since early 2014, the Global Health Workforce Alliance (GHWA) has coordinated a global consultation, through the development of 8 thematic papers to collate evidence in support of the global strategy on HRH. Comments received from the Consultation has informed the zero draft of the Global Strategy on Human Resources for Health: Workforce 2030.
In July - August 2015, consultation was open to Member States of the WHO, institutions, networks, civil society groups, individuals and relevant organisations with interest in human resources for health. THET responded to this call to highlight the unique opportunity that exists to invest in the development of health systems in low and middle income countries through supporting health workers through partnerships. Overall the document is very comprehensive, and strategically addresses health care delivery at global and national levels, without leaving fragile states behind. However , climate change and its impact health, as well as adaptation funding from high-income countries lacks prominence. Translating this strategy from theory to practice is essential.
