Improving the resilience and workforce of health systems for women’s, children’s, and adolescents’ health

Improving the resilience and workforce of health systems for women’s, children’s, and adolescents’ health
The United Nations’ first Every Woman Every Child strategy, Global Strategy for Women’s and Children’s Health, provided an impetus “to improve the health of hundreds of millions of women and children around the world and, in so doing, to improve the lives of all people.” The updated Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s, and Adolescents’ Health calls for an even more ambitious agenda of expanding equitable coverage to a broader range of reproductive, maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health services, as integral to the 2030 targets of the sustainable development goals.

These goals cannot be realised by efforts that tackle only specific parts of the global strategy. Instead, an integrated approach is required, to include the complementary functions of stewardship, financing, workforce, supply chain, information systems, and service delivery.3 In this paper we highlight two core aspects that require urgent attention—building the resilience of health systems and ensuring sufficient human resources.

Abstract

The United Nations’ first Every Woman Every Child strategy, Global Strategy for Women’s and Children’s Health, provided an impetus “to improve the health of hundreds of millions of women and children around the world and, in so doing, to improve the lives of all people.” The updated Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s, and Adolescents’ Health calls for an even more ambitious agenda of expanding equitable coverage to a broader range of reproductive, maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health services, as integral to the 2030 targets of the sustainable development goals.

These goals cannot be realised by efforts that tackle only specific parts of the global strategy. Instead, an integrated approach is required, to include the complementary functions of stewardship, financing, workforce, supply chain, information systems, and service delivery.3 In this paper we highlight two core aspects that require urgent attention—building the resilience of health systems and ensuring sufficient human resources.
