Human Resources for Health

Human Resources for Health is the most important building block of public health systems. The major components are :-

  1. Generating adequate skilled Human Resources
  2. Strategy for recruiting and retaining public health workforce especially in rural and remote areas
  3. Ensuring that appropriate skills are in place
  4. Ensuring performance with quality in the staff


"Health service providers are the personification of a system’s core values – they heal and care for people, ease pain and suffering, prevent disease and mitigate risk – the human link that connects knowledge to health action"
