HRH Action Framework

Applying the HRH Action Framework to Develop Sustainable Excellence in the Health Supply Chain Workforce

To ensure that medicines and other health commodities reach the people who need them and contribute to improved health, people in the supply chain management (SCM) field must understand and apply effective approaches for developing and managing supply chain workforces. At the same time, those in the human resources for health (HRH) arena must recognize the crucial role of SCM in health service delivery and ensure that HRH policies, strategies, and plans systematically incorporate the supply chain workforce. The objective of this technical brief is to create a bridge between the SCM and HRH communities by describing how the HRH Action Framework can be applied to strengthen the health supply chain workforce, drawing on lessons learned and successes from applications in the health sector.

Overcoming the Hurdle of Implementation: Putting Human Resources for Health Tools into Action

This article in Revista Peruana de Medicina Experimental y Salud Pública by CapacityPlus’s deputy director for HRH and health systems strengthening provides guidance for putting health workforce tools into action.

The global human resources for health (HRH) challenge remains persistent. In 2006, the World Health Report identified 57 crisis countries, and, despite increased attention and investment in strengthening the workforce, those countries are still in crisis. While many countries have HRH plans, this paper asserts that a major reason countries remain in crisis is the lack of sustained implementation to achieve concrete workforce strengthening results. It is critical for HRH leaders to take action to ensure that already available tools are disseminated, adapted, and used to foster effective implementation at the country level. The paper highlights four such tools as examples that can be used to build implementation capacity, and offers recommendations to support more results-oriented implementation.
