The Global Health Workforce Alliance firmly commits to continue advocating for action to address the health workforce crisis
Description/achievement of initiativeThe Global Health Workforce Alliance pledges to keep women and children at the heart of its work. Analysing the impact of increased health workforce action on the areas of maternal, newborn and child health will be a key indicator for progress. The Alliance firmly commits to continue advocating for action to address the health workforce crisis -- and thereby improve the health of women and children -- at the highest political levels and across our vast network of members and partners. GHWA pledges to ensure a better health workforce availability and capacity to address reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health (RMNCH) needs in selected human resources for health (HRH) priority countries through a combination of advocacy and knowledge brokering activities at global and regional levels and the provision of direct catalytic support and targeted capacity building activities in selected countries, through its Country Coordination and Facilitation (CCF) approach.
