Comment on the Synthesis Document!

At the Sixty-seventh World Health Assembly in May 2014, the World Health Organization was requested to develop a Global Strategy on Human Resources for health, to be presented to the Executive Board in January 2016 and finally to the Sixty-ninth World Health Assembly in May 2016.

Since early 2014, the Global Health Workforce Alliance (GHWA) coordinated a broad-based global consultation, through the development of 8 thematic papers to collate evidence in support of the global strategy on HRH. GHWA held a public consultation from 24 September and 30 November 2014 and invited feedback on the 8 thematic papers from all relevant organizations, institutions, networks, civil society groups. GHWA has now summarized the findings of the papers and has developed a “synthesis document” to provide recommendations to WHO, to inform the development of the global strategy on HRH.

GHWA is inviting feedback and comments on the synthesis paper until January 31. Comments can be sent to The synthesis paper will be presented and discussed at the GHWA board at its 18th Board meeting on the 25-26 February 2015.

WHO will use the recommendations from synthesis document to inform the deliberations by its Member States. For more information on the rationale and the process of developing the Strategy please refer to the Information flyer.
