Timor-Leste’s current human resources for health (HRH) challenges include insufficient quantity, skill mix and distribution of qualified health workers, which can result in low performance and motivation among workers, and inequitable delivery of and access to quality services.  HRH2030 is working with the National Institute of Health (INS) to improve the quality and completeness of HRH data, and generate and share that high-quality data across all HRH stakeholders through an institutionalized, sustainable information system. The project will also build the Government of Timor-Leste’s capacity to manage and strategically use these data to make evidence-informed decisions for planning, monitoring and allocating resources more efficiently and effectively. These efforts will maximize HRH performance, fulfill the Timor-Leste Health Sector Strategic Plan and enable more Timorese to access quality health services and live healthier lives.
