Written in response to a serious global human resource shortage in the health sector, this report grew out of a concern that more needed to be done by wealthy countries in response to this challenge. The report offers seven recommendations, mainly directed to the United States because of its leadership capacity, that address the global health worker shortage, including building the country’s own workforce with a focus on self-sufficiency and task shifting, collaborating with the international community, and reforming its global health assistance programs to help developing countries educate and retain their own workers.
