This report presents the findings and recommendations of the Global Health Workforce Alliance’s Task Force for Scaling Up and Training for Health Workers, focusing on countries with a health workforce crisis. The report uses evidence from Brazil, Ethiopia,and India on what can and has been done to expand the education and training of health workers quickly and on a national scale, by national governments as well as education and training bodies. The Task Force estimates it would require US $2.6 billion a year to educate and train 1.5 million additional health workers in Africa. It makes 10 recommendations for how to address this global problem and ensure all have access to suitably trained and motivated workers as part of a functioning health system.
