The National Health Workforce Accounts (NHWA) presented in this Handbook contains a set of 90 core indicators, divided over ten modules, that aim to provide concise information on the health workforce situation and trends of a country. The NHWA contains indicators of relevance to country, regional and global reporting across the spectrum of health workforce priorities. It is primarily based on a comprehensive health labour market framework for universal health coverage (UHC). The purpose of the NHWA is to facilitate the standardization of a health workforce information system for interoperability, as well as to support tracking Human Resources for Health (HRH) policy performance towards UHC. This version is a draft for consultation.
