Human Resources for Health Action Framework


The Human Resources for Health Action Framework (HAF) was developed by representatives of multilateral and bilateral agencies, donors, partner countries, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), and the academic community at a technical consultation in Washington, DC, on December 14–15, 2005. The World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) sponsored this meeting, the goal of which was to agree on a simple but comprehensive technical framework to assist governments and health managers
to develop and implement strategies to achieve an effective and sustainable health workforce. Several existing frameworks were examined as part of the process.
