Projects successful in strengthening their country-level health workforce were highlighted as examples of excellence at the Second Global Forum. An independent award committee of prominent experts in human resources for health selected 36 case stories, which were all featured in the marketplace during the forum.
Each example highlights outstanding results in strengthening of a health workforce through using one or more of the six strategies outlined in the Kampala Declaration and Agenda for Global Action.
“These case studies are outstanding examples of successful strengthening of a health workforce,” said Dr Mubashar Sheikh, Executive Director of the Alliance. “Strategies outlined in the Kampala Declaration and Agenda for Global Action are guiding countries and other stakeholders in their work improving human resources for health. These are all promising examples, of which we can all learn from.”
Six overall winners were announced at the Forum’s closing ceremony. In total, 96 compelling case stories were submitted from 46 countries. Each submission featured one or more of the strategies outlined in the Kampala Declaration and Agenda for Global Action.
