The 10th Annual Asia Pacific Alliance on Human Resources for Health (AAAH) conference was held in Hanoi, Vietnam in November 2018. AAAH was formed in response to the internationally recognized need for collective regional movement to strengthen country planning action on the health workforce system. As of 2013, members of the organization include Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, Fiji, India, Indonesia, Laos, Mongolia Myanmar, Nepal, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Samoa, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Vietnam. The five focus areas for the organization include human resources for health advocacy, information monitoring, capacity strengthening, knowledge generation, and technical coordination.

HRH2030 Project Director Wanda Jaskiewicz attended the event and presented at a side session entitled: “Strategies and lessons learned in increasing health workforce efficiencies for progress on the Global HRH strategy.” The session included two panels, with one focusing on building the future health workforce and the other on optimizing the current health workforce. The second panel was moderated by Dr. Marilyn Lorenzo, HRH2030/Philippines Project Director. All presentations from this session can be found below.
