Bulletin of the World Health Organization
November 27, 2013: Launched in Recife, Brazil, this month, the Bulletin of the World Health Organization was a themed issue with a focus on Universal Health Coverage. The launch was held to mark WHO’s Third Global Forum on Human Resource for Health and thus the theme of the issue was human resources for universal health coverage. Featuring twenty-five articles, the Bulletin explores the efforts, work plans, successful engagements and challenges in involving the human resource towards achieving universal health coverage. Our president, Dr. Sania Nishtar was a lead author with Johanna Ralston, World Heart Federation on the Bulletin’s paper: Can human resources for health in the context of non-communicable disease control be a lever for health system changes?
