Human Resources for Health (HRH) – Liberia

CHAI's Human Resources for Health (HRH) Programs aim to build the health education infrastructure and health workforce necessary to create high quality, sustainable healthcare systems in developing countries. CHAI is focusing its efforts in three strategic focus areas: 1) significantly increasing the number of qualified health workers 2) optimizing the distribution of health workers 3) improving health worker productivity.

In 2014, CHAI supported the Government of Liberia to develop a bold, comprehensive Health Workforce Program to guide national and donor funds to achieve the objectives laid out in Liberia’s 2011 National Human Resources Policy and Plan (HRPP). The resulting strategy articulates Liberia’s need to increase health faculty at training institutions and medical infrastructure at training hospitals in order to achieve an aggressive scale-up plan that will increase the quality, skill-diversity and quantity of health professionals trained in Liberia. The strategy emphasizes the country’s desire to move from Ebola containment and treatment to prevention of a recurrence, which will only be achieved through rebuilding and strengthening the health system holistically.

In 2015, CHAI is supporting the Government of Liberia to mobilize resources for Liberia’s training institutions and government to ensure development and management of existing and new health professional training programs. In addition, CHAI is leading a coalition of advocacy and implementation partners to support Liberia's Ministry of Health with pre-implementation activities.
