Abstract: The human resources crisis in health is not just a phenomenon in developed countries, but also in developing countries. These countries face great internal migration of health workers from rural to urban, but many also go to the West. This briefing paper presents several strategies that are divided into actions THERE, namely in developing countries with shortages of health workers, and actions HERE, in Western countries to address the global shortage of health workers.
