Global Health Workforce Alliance

Some recent developments in achieving value for money in health in Africa to read about on the Global Health Workforce Alliance website.

Led by Lord Nigel Crisp, ( member of the House of Lords UK and champion of the Alliance ), the All Party Parliamentary Group on Global Health and Africa launched a new report on the changing roles and skill mix of health workers, ” All the Talents ” on 11 July 2012. The report looks at how innovations in the skill mix of health workers can improve the quality and availability of health services and reduce costs.

From July 4th-5th the Harmonisation for Health in Africa ( HHA ) organised a Conference in Tunis of African Ministers of Finance and Ministers of Health  on the theme of achieving greater value for money in health. Given that Human resources for Health ( HRH ) constitutes the single largest component  of the health budget the GHW Alliance prepared a topic brief on HRH financing to feed into conference deliberations and the governance framework.
