Increasing Site-Level HRH Data Availability and Utilization

Health facility managers often struggle to ensure they have the data needed to make smart staffing and management decisions about the health worker supply and skill mix needed to reach HIV service delivery targets and appropriate strategies for improving health worker capacity for HIV/AIDS prevention, care and treatment services. To address this issue, PEPFAR developed the PEPFAR Rapid Site-Level HRH Assessment Tool to assess the adequacy of human resources, identify HRH bottlenecks to HIV service delivery, and determine areas of intervention to improve health worker availability, efficiency and quality in order to scale up HIV service delivery.

 

With funding from PEPFAR, HRH2030 supported HIV/AIDS service delivery by:

  • Adapting and applying the PEPFAR Rapid Site-Level HRH Assessment Tool at high-volume HIV/AIDS service delivery sites in two countries. For these two countries, HRH2030 used the assessment results to 
    • Measure the adequacy of the number of providers and the relative efficiency of existing human resourcesing the adequacy of the number of providers and the relative efficiency of existing human resources
    • Identify HRH barriers to delivering quality HIV/AIDS services
    • Recommend immediate interventions to help close staffing, performance, and productivity gaps
  • Building a database to be used by countries to manage and analyze assessment data without the need for technical assistance
