With funding from PEPFAR, HRH2030 has developed, piloted, and field-tested this tool to help health facility staff and district health management teams optimize their health workforce for the roll-out of “Test and Start” utilizing differentiated service delivery (DSD) models.
While USAID and other global health leaders strive to promote healthier lives for all, shifting disease dynamics and population growth in low- and middle-income countries pose ever-increasing stress on national health systems. As a critical piece of the health system, a strong health workforce — with the right skills and in the right places — is key to alleviating these pressures. However, leaders at all levels face a global health workforce shortage and, in many cases, they lack the data and tools needed to optimize the existing workforce and advocate for more resources. HRH2030 aims to work with partners across sectors to find sustainable solutions to these challenges, furthering USAID’s vision of sustained, equitable access to responsive, high-quality health services.
