To optimize and align human resources for health investments and develop targeted policy responses, a thorough understanding of unique, country-specific labor market dynamics and determinants of these dynamics is critical. The book is a multiauthor collaboration between the World Bank, the World Health Organization, and the University of California, Berkeley. It discusses data sources and empirical tools that can be used to assess health labor markets – including demand and supply, performance, and remuneration of health workers.
