It will not be possible to effectively scale up MNCH care without dealing with theglobal crisis that currently affects the health workforce. In many countries economic hardship and financial crises have destabilized and undermined the human resources working in the health sector. This affects health systems as a whole, and MNCH care in particular, and requires action at different levels.
There is a need to prevent further escalation of the crisis – which has to include measures to prevent the distortions that result from well-intentioned but disruptive global initiatives. There is also a need for planning the expansion of the workforce, and, at the same time, for urgent, immediate corrective measures to rehabilitate productivity and morale. Putting these various elements in place can only be successful if there is a strong national leadership, based on a broad consensus within society.
