Health for All & UHC

All people everywhere have the right to the highest attainable standard of health. A motivated, adequately equipped, and equitably distributed health workforce is central to the achievement of universal health coverage (UHC)

Adequate Financing

Adequate, new and sustainable financing is essential to addressing the global shortage of health workers and strengthening health systems. HWAI aims to mobilize domestic and international resources to scale-up the number of human resources for health and meet global and national health targets.

Empowering Society

Civil society plays an important role in holding governments and institutions to account for efforts intended to meet local need. HWAI aims to deepen the knowledge and capacity of civil society so that it has the resources to effectively address the shortage of human resources for health.
