Human Resource Plan - Development Project, Botswana

Health Partners Southern Africa provided technical assistance for Botswana's Ministry of Health's ten year Health Manpower Plan.


The project aimed to ensure equitable distribution of human resources throughout the public health sector and to provide accessible and affordable services.

Throughout the ten year time period, Manpower scenarios were developed to take into account plans for expansion, adjustment and abolition of services.


The plan also included:

  • an assessment of anti-retroviral treatment (ART) service delivery
  • human resource requirements for the implementation of ART delivery across HIV/ AIDS services
  • requirements for the human resource administration systems in central medical laboratories, central pharmaceutical services, bio medical engineering services and head offices.
