National Department Of Health Human Resource Strategy
National Department Of Health Human Resource Strategy.
On 11 October 2011 the Department of Health (DoH) released its 2012 – 2017 Human Resource for Health Strategy (HRHS). It has long been recognised that without a suffi cient and appropriate supply of healthcare professionals, the envisaged National Health Insurance (NHI) system would be a mere pipedream.
The document analyses the status quo, and then deals with recommendations in relation to three themes, i.e. the supply of health professionals and equity of access; education, training and research and the working environment. No analysis is included on occupational health, and how this links into the overall HRHS.
It also sets eight strategic priorities, objectives and activities under each. The former will be listed below, and described in detail in the next issue. It proposes the establishment of Task Teams, Units, Centres, Committees and Institutes to implement the strategy (see Figure 1).
