Evaluation and Knowledge-Sharing
Accurate and timely information for decision-making and advocacy is a key system component in strengthening human resources for health (HRH). However, indicators used to measure efforts and progress in HRH have been limited and often unreliable, especially in countries with weak or no monitoring and evaluation (M&E) plans and/or human resources information systems. Such limitations prevent or severely constrain country, donor, and program initiatives to identify and address gaps in HRH and to track progress over time. CapacityPlus helped to bridge these gaps by developing a more robust measurement approach to assessing the complex framework for HRH—the HRH Effort Index—and by increasing capacity for M&E of HRH at the country level through improved measurement approaches and M&E skills.
To expand the sharing of HRH knowledge, CapacityPlus supported the HRH Global Resource Center, which offers the largest collection of open access HRH resources and user base of all existing HRH digital libraries and knowledge hubs. The HRH Global Resource Center serves users from nearly 200 countries and territories and has an excellent worldwide reputation among HRH stakeholders and users at all levels of the health sector. Its eLearning platform has enjoyed remarkable success in the number of registered learners for its courses designed to address HRH skills gaps.
