Skip to 0 minutes and 8 seconds ASSEFA SEME DERESSE: Hello, everyone. My name is Assefa Seme Deresse. I’m an associate professor of Public Health and Reproductive Health at the School of Public Health at Addis Ababa University. Welcome to the module on Human Resource for Health. In this lecture, we’ll introduce to you what the Human Resource for Health is and who the health workers are. We’ll also be looking at the importance of human resources for health, challenges they face, and the strategies used to maximize their performance.

In this section, Dr. Deresse introduces us to the huge variety of specialized staff across categories, who are critical to the success of global health programs.
Considering a world-wide immunization program, can you think of 5 categories of human resources required? For example, staff to carry out logistics management, as we discussed last week, would be one category.
