Abstract:

In order to evaluate the distribution of health workers across Tanzania, relative to health needs, the USAIDfunded Health Policy Project (HPP) examined existing sources and conducted new analyses of human resources for health (HRH). Drawing on the results of these analyses, HPP proposes within this brief specific policy actions to improve 1) supply and retention of skilled health workers; 2) distribution of health workers; and 3) processes for hiring skilled health workers.
