Tools for Planning and Developing Human Resources for HIV/AIDS and Other Health Services


Many people are not getting the HIV/AIDS services they need due to lack of health care providers. And paying the salaries of health personnel consumes a major proportion of national budgets for health services—up to 75 percent in some countries. Good information and planning are essential to make the best use of these scarce human and financial resources and to scale up HIV/AIDS services without depleting the staff needed to deliver primary health care.

Management Sciences for Health and the World Health Organization bring together in this collection many valuable, tested tools and guidelines for policymakers, health program managers, and human resource planners. These materials will help decision-makers build leadership capacity and develop a strategy to mitigate the impact of HIV/AIDS, for both a short-term emergency response and longer-term strengthening of human resources for health.
