    Taking stock: Health worker shortages and the response to AIDS.

    World Health Organization [WHO]. HIV / AIDS Programme

    Geneva, Switzerland, WHO, 2006. 15 p. (WHO/HIV/2006.05)

    In August 2006, the World Health Organization (WHO) launched a coordinated global effort to address a major and often overlooked barrier to preventing and treating HIV: the severe shortage of health workers, particularly in low- and middle-income countries. Called 'Treat, Train, Retain' (TTR), the plan is an important component of WHO's overall efforts to strengthen human resources for health and to promote comprehensive national strategies for human resource development across different disease programmes. It is also part of WHO's effort to promote universal access to HIV/AIDS services. TTR will strengthen and expand the health workforce by addressing both the causes and the effects of HIV and AIDS for health workers (Box). Meeting this global commitment will depend on strong and effective health-care systems that are capable of delivering services on a scale much larger than today's. (excerpt)

    Health professions applaud the WHO 3 by 5 initiative to bring treatment to AIDS sufferers.

    Journal of Advanced Nursing. 2004 Jun; 46(5):567-570.

    Speaking out on World AIDS Day the organization representing the world nurses, pharmacists and physicians has expressed solid support for the World Health Organization's initiative to provide life-saving antiretroviral treatment to 3 million people in developing countries by the end of 2005. 'We are relieved to see this action plan and broad commitment to tackle the AIDS treatment emergency', explained Delon Human, General Secretary of the World Medical Association. 'Access to treatment can relieve the terrible tragedy of illness, inability to work and look after one's family and eventual death.' The World Health Professions Alliance (WHPA) went on to emphasize the key importance of available skilled human health resources in achieving the 3 by 5 goals. 'Rapidly extending the capacity and rerooling the health world force currently in place now has to be a priority if we are to succeed in testing, treating and caring for the people who require therapy', stated Judith Oulton, Chief Executive Officer of the International Council of Nurses speaking on behalf of the World Health Professions Alliance.
