25 Feb Poster: Using Health Workforce Data to Address Health Systems Challenges in Indonesia
Health workforce challenges can deter countries’ progress in tackling non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and meeting Sustainable Development Goals. In Indonesia, where the national health insurance program is facing an increased NCD burden and a shortage of health workers to respond to these needs, quality data on the health workforce is necessary to plan the way forward. The Ministry of Health’s Badan Pengembangan Dan Pemberdayaan Sumber Daya Manusia Kesehatan (BPPSDMK), with HRH2030 support, is working to increase the availability, quality, and use of human resources for health (HRH) data, following a health labor market approach and enhancing the capacity of the human resource information system. HRH data, combined with data on epidemiological trends and demographics, can forecast the demand for specific health services, the health workforce supply needed to respond to these demands, and also inform equitable distribution for policy development and a stronger health system.
This poster was presented November 7, 2019 at the Indonesia Health Economics Association 6th Annual Scientific Meeting (InaHEA).
