A Health Policy and Systems Research Reader on Human Resources for Health launched

A Health Policy and Systems Research Reader on Human Resources for Health launched at the Fourth Global Forum on Human Resources for Health in Dublin. #HRHForum2017

Edited by Asha George, Kerry Scott, Veloshnee Govender, the idea for the Reader emerged from the need for guidance on and examples of excellent and innovative Human Resources for Health (HRH) research, embracing health workers as creative and dynamic agents who work alongside patients, community members, managers and policy-makers to address contemporary health system complexities. The Reader promotes greater understanding of the varied health policy and systems research approaches that can be applied to HRH and provides resources that can be used for teaching and capacity development on HRH for researchers and practitioners alike.

Asha George (@ashageorge72): We had wonderful collaborators at every turn, another step in strengthening people centred HPSR for HRH with a strong focus on redressing bias against LMIC research. Great privilege to work with next generation researchers from across the global south in advancing people centred HRH HPSR.
