Human Resources for Health

Human resources are an essential element of a health system and an important organisational asset.  Health care is labour intensive and the health sector is a major employer in many countries, with the cost of human resources accounting for a high proportion of national health budgets.  It is therefore critical that appropriate systems and practices are in place to manage and develop health workers and to ensure that they contribute to sector performance and health outcomes.  LATH has been involved in supporting HRH internationally for over 10 years in partnership with agencies such as DFID, USAID, WHO and the World Bank.
