24 Jul Poster: Investing in the HIV Workforce — Government Capacity and Willingness to Increase HRH Spending in Response to Increased Needs for HIV in Uganda
While Uganda is on track to meet 90-90-90 targets by 2020, the country faces several human resources for health (HRH) and financing constraints. HRH constraints include inadequate skills mix, maldistribution of health workers, high absenteeism, and a 36 percent vacancy rate in public facilities. Financing constraints include poor macroeconomic projections in the short term, low prioritization of health in the government budget, and high dependency on external donor financing, particularly for HIV.
Given these constraints for HIV scale-up and with support from PEPFAR, HRH2030 assessed the capacity and willingness of the government to make more strategic investments in facility- and community-based HRH for HIV.
