Human Resources for Health Technical WG


Tanzania is facing serious Human Resources for Health (HRH) crises. Serious HRH shortfalls and challenges have been identified and highlighted at the Annual Joint Reviews of the health sector since 2002 up to 2007. The Ministry of Health and Social Welfare (MOHSW) in 2004 responded by establishing a working group. The working group is expected to support the government of Tanzania and to coordinate HRH issues and provide advice to the MOHSW. The members were formally appointed in 2004 by the MOH, and charged with addressing the Human Resource issue.

Terms of reference for the HRH TWG.
