Webinar: Mobilizing Domestic Resources for the HIV Workforce — Estimating investment needs

Webinar: Mobilizing Domestic Resources for the HIV Workforce — Estimating investment needs

Webinar (August 28, 2018, 61 min): Sufficient financing of the HIV workforce is critical to achieving 95-95-95 targets and maintaining achievements. To ease health worker constraints, many countries have received donor support for health workers in providing HIV services. Greater analysis of the required resource needs to support the HIV workforce is important for guiding long-term health workforce planning and mobilization of domestic resources— critical to ensuring sustainability of existing investments made.

This webinar explores how to generate evidence of HIV workforce needs and costs, and presents approaches to conduct analyses, based on results from an investment case generated in Uganda. It includes descriptions of data requirements and solutions to overcome common methodological challenges. The webinar also discusses the need to use this evidence to advocate for more strategic investment in the health workforce to support HIV and mobilization of resources.
