A strong health workforce — with the right skills and in the right places — is key to alleviating stress imposed on national health systems. At Chemonics, we help low- and middle-income countries develop the health workforce needed to prevent maternal and child deaths, control the HIV/AIDS epidemic, support family planning and reproductive health, and protect communities from infectious disease. We work with leaders at all levels of the government to solve health workforce challenges related to planning, recruitment, training, productivity, distribution, and retention. Our programs support frontline health providers and community health workers to have the skills, supervision, mentorship, peer support, tools, and resources they need to thrive. We look across sectors to find solutions to common human resources for health bottlenecks, such as addressing gender disparities, applying lessons learned from the education sector, and identifying opportunities to streamline workflows through information technology and digital innovations. By laying the foundation for smart use of data, we help stakeholders boost the efficiency of their existing health workforce, implement tools that work, incorporate non-traditional health workers into policies and plans, and advocate for the workforce needed to achieve national health goals.
