Developing a health care workforce requirement and recruitment plan in Tanzania


The Technical Support Services Project (TSSP) worked with the Tanzania Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly, and Children (MoHCDGEC) to analyze data to project future health care employment needs, including current and future vacancies, and create a five-year recruitment and staffing plan. This plan provided information about projected trends in health care employment to help health facilities, educators, policymakers, and other stakeholders better understand the current and future demand for health workers over the next decade and strategies to address that demand so they could appropriately budget and plan to fill necessary positions and improve the quality of health care.
