This toolkit was created by the Health Workforce Advocacy Initiative, the civil society-led network of the Global Health Workforce Alliance. The purpose of this toolkit is to assist health professionals, health professional associations, and civil society organizations to develop advocacy strategies to address human resource and health financing issues in their countries.
Health workers play a myriad of roles in the community. They are healers, counselors and leaders. They interact with all members of the community, from children to the elderly. As such, health workers possess a unique opportunity to be powerful and effective advocates for change that will benefit the communities they serve, ranging from increasing the availability of treatment, to improving the quality of the health facility, to improving the conditions within which health consumers seek care and within which health workers provide it.
