Strengthening human resources for health in the Caribbean
MetadataShow full item record
The Caribbean has a serious need to improve the health information system, and in particular related to human resources for health. PAHO has been working with country focal points to report on the HRH indicators included in the WHO National Health Workforce Accounts (NHWA) platform. However, not all indicators in the NHWA (about 80) are relevant to the Caribbean or can be reported due to limitations in data collection and available information. The HRH Action Task Force (now HRH Caribbean Commission), with support from PAHO identified a set of 30 core indicators and sub-indicators for the Caribbean, classified in three levels of importance and complexity. This publication systematizes the process and includes the chosen core indicators and sub-indicators.
