Launched the Progress report on the Kampala Declaration

NHCO / Story of the Month  / Launched the Progress report on the Kampala Declaration

Launched the Progress report on the Kampala Declaration and Agenda for Global Action at Prince Mahidol Award Conference 2011.

The Prince Mahidol Award Conference (PMAC), the Global Health Workforce Alliance (GHWA), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) jointly organize the Prince Mahidol Award Conference 2011 / Second Global Forum on Human Resources for Health (HRH) during 25-29 January 2011 in Bangkok, Thailand. The theme of this Forum ‘Reviewing progress, renewing commitments to health workers towards MDGs and beyond’ is set in accordance with the Kampala Declaration (KD) in 2008.

At the conference, the Progress report on the Kampala Declaration and Agenda for Global Action (AGA) was launched on 25 January 2010. The report represents the first attempt to track progress in implementing the Kampala Declaration and AGA, and provides a snapshot of the human resources for health policy and governance situation in the priority countries affected by severe health workforce challenges. The report highlights areas of progress as well as those that conversely require increased attention.

The Progress Report focuses on how countries are doing in planning and coordinating their health workforce interventions, and their efforts in relation to information systems, education and retention strategies, and investment decisions. In addition, this analysis of key health workforce policies has been complemented with case stories submitted by countries and organizations that illustrate, through a more qualitative approach, the progress in implementing the Agenda for Global Action in the priority countries. Read the progress report at WHO.
