Human Resources for Health

India grapples with manifold challenges in meeting the Human Resources for Health (HRH) demand, the cornerstone of operationalizing healthcare services. The active health worker density is below WHO recommendations. There is an absence of well-defined HRD policies regarding planning, deployment, career progression, retention, and professional development. Lack of competency-based training and gaps in “required competency” of leadership is another area requiring attention. We at HSTP are committed to ensuring HRH policies are in place for the availability & accessibility of quality HRH in the states & within the health system as per IPHS norms. We collaborate with the State Health Departments of Meghalaya, Chhattisgarh, and Odisha, to strengthen HRH through initiatives ensuring policy implementation, adherence to quality standards, competency enhancement, & leadership development. HSTP also nudges the states to establish the Public Health Management Cadre as stressed by NHP, 2017.
