Human Resources and Health Systems Strengthening

Many developing countries lack adequate numbers of trained health cadres and/or personnel of a sufficient quality. Adequate human resources are part of wider issues related to health systems strengthening and policy making and call for approaches comprising transparent and accountable governance at national and local levels. In addition, improvements in service delivery and quality also require the strengthening of health information systems. These need to include robust data-for-decision-making processes which inform both staffing and commodity needs and improve access and equity. I am particularly interested in m-Health approaches to routine data collection and use and in the integration of routine monitoring into national systems such as DHIS2.
