Just Released in Human Resource for Health – “Forecasting Imbalances in the Global Health Labor Market and Devising Policy Responses”

Petris Center researchers have a new paper released in the Journal of Human Resources for Health. The paper, titled “Forecasting Imbalances in the Global Health Labor Market and Devising Policy Responses”, was co-authored by Petris Center Director Dr. Richard Scheffler and Petris Research Director Dr. Daniel Arnold, as well as researchers from the WHO, World Bank, OCED, UC Irvine, and UCSF.

The paper examines two recent key workforce reports – one done by the World Health Organization (WHO) that used a needs-based approach and one done by the World Bank that uses a labor market approach – examining how their key findings were developed, the global policy dilemmas they raise, and relevant policy solutions.
