The Asia Pacific Action Alliance on Human Resources for Health (AAAH) is a regional partnership mechanism established in response to international recognition of the need for global and regional action to strengthen country capacity for HRH planning and management. The AAAH is part of a larger movement to enhance HRH development as articulated in documents like the Kampala Declaration and the Agenda for Global Action. It was established in 2005, with 10 founding members. The AAAH membership was further expanded. In 2019, membership increased to 18 countries — 9 from the South East Asia Region (SEAR) e.g. Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Indonesia, Maldives, Myanmar, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Thailand; and 9 from the Western Pacific Region (WPR) e.g. Cambodia, China, Fiji, Lao PDR, Mongolia, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Samoa and Vietnam.
