Building HR Information Systems: Leading the Way in Uganda

The Capacity Project has published an article in their Voices series about our HRIS strengthening work in Uganda. Here is an excerpt:

In Uganda and other developing countries, the demand for medical professionals is increasing while the supply is decreasing. Only about half of Uganda’s approved public sector positions for nurses are filled, while HIV and AIDS continue to take a toll on health workers as well as the rest of the population.

To help build the health workforce, the Capacity Project assisted Uganda’s Ministry of Health to craft and implement a comprehensive agenda for human resources for health. Strengthening the Ministry’s ability to gather and use accurate data for strategic planning is an important part of the Project’s work. Improved human resources information systems (HRIS) will help the Ministry to plan for recruitment, training and retention of health professionals.
