This week we wrapped up our month-long blog series, “Supporting the Human in Human Resources.” This series featured authors from six organizations, programs from Africa and the Caribbean, and a myriad of topics. There were interviews with health workers, explorations of the intersection of technology and human resources, suggestions for policy and advocacy for health cadre strengthening, methods to motivate and invest in the work force, and, ultimately, clear ties highlighted between improving quality of maternal health and strengthening human resources.
Below you will find the blog series collection. Expect more from the Maternal Health Task Force as we continue to highlight novel human resources approaches through our blog, Facebook, Twitter, and the Maternal Health Buzz.
