Human Resources for the South African Health System

Creating the people development and management foundation for universal access to healthcare / the NHI


Human resources is not where it needs to be in the South African Health System, nor is it well positioned to meet the aspirations of National Health Insurance. We need to grow leadership and scholarship in the discipline of Human Resources for Health , a strong community of practice as well as to be future ready. It is hoped that this Conference will provide the foundations for a shift to flexible strategic HR management, anchored in a trans-disciplinary approach. The conference will explore transformative changes and innovative practices in the fields of workforce planning and development, leadership, scaling up and relevant education and staffing, performance and retention. The programme will include research presentations, panel discussions and debates, all in a vibrant atmosphere tailored to open new vistas in our quest to achieve universal access to quality health care for all South Africans.

 

We hope that by blending the perspectives of the disciplines of public health, people management and public administration we will find new strategies and ideas for successful implementation. We look forward to welcoming researchers, policy developers, managers and practitioners who have an interest in the field of Human Resources for Health.
