Human Resources for Health (HRH) is rightly prominent on the global health agenda as the countdown to 2015
and the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) grows in resonance. The global health community
has made strides in generating evidence, sharing knowledge, and reaching agreements on how to advance
HRH policy and achieve results.*
The upcoming rounds of Global Health Initiative (GHI) funding decisions offer scope to further develop country
HRH programming and put commitments into practice to improve health systems. HRH experts and practitioners
recognise this window of opportunity and have been engaged in debate on how to support the development and
review of proposals to GHIs to integrate and implement evidence-based, best practice and/or innovative HRH solutions within disease-focused funding channels.
