HRH Effort Index

Developing a Human Resources for Health (HRH) Effort Index to Measure Country-Level Status in HRH

Human resources for health (HRH) are an essential component of health systems and crucial to increased accessibility and quality of services. However, there is a scarcity of HRH indicators and the few that exist are often unreliable, inconsistently related to outcomes, or do not inform on the multidimensional nature of the area. Based on HRH and performance-based frameworks, CapacityPlus and a technical advisory group developed the HRH Effort Index to measure inputs and outputs in HRH. Presented at the Prince Mahidol Award Conference in Bangkok (January 26–31, 2015), this poster highlights preliminary results from testing the HRH Effort Index in Kenya and Nigeria.
