The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), through the Department of Health Systems and Services (HSS) and the Department of Evidence and Intelligence for Health Action (EIH), is pleased to launch the Special Edition on Human Resources for Universal Health of the Pan American Journal of Public Health.
In order for the countries of the Region of the Americas to move towards an equitable health system with access to adequate, timely, quality and comprehensive health services, it is necessary to have human resources with adequate knowledge and skills, and in sufficient numbers where they are required. This special issue presents relevant evidence for action and change in the field of human resources for health to support the broader goal of achieving universal health.
