Strengthening Human Resources Management and Planning, South Africa

Client: Eastern Cape Department of Health (ECDOH)

HPSA is leading the reform of the HR for health planning and management systems across all the health facilities and hospitals in the Eastern Cape. The aim of this project is to enable the ECDOH to plan effectively using accurate, reliable and accessible HR information, to achieve equitable distribution of staff across all facilities, with an appropriate skills mix to match service delivery requirements and to support the institutionalization of HR planning systems and procedures within the ECDOH. Implementation activities include the review of the staffing and competency development requirements in all of the public hospitals of the Eastern Cape. Using HR Planner, raw data is being processed into useful information sets, which are linked to key performance indicators, based on the service delivery profile of health facilities.
