Human Resources for Health aims to disseminate research on health workforce policy, the health labour market, health workforce practice, development of knowledge tools and implementation mechanisms nationally and internationally; as well as specific features of the health workforce, such as the impact of management of health workers' performance and its link with health outcomes.
The journal encourages debate on health sector reforms and their link with human resources issues, a hitherto-neglected area.
The development, deployment and evaluation of the health workforce are complex processes that require multidisciplinary collaboration in areas such as: analysis of needs; planning; evaluation of programmes; economic evaluation; political and policy analysis; demographics and statistics; effectiveness of teaching methods; and processes for improving motivation and productivity. There is no other specialist journal in which this analytical agenda can be debated and disseminated to the broader community of human resources scientists. This journal invites contributions from all the associated disciplines. It particularly welcomes articles concerning health workforce issues in developing countries.
