Donor support for health workers has been instrumental in the progress against HIV/AIDS. These health workers are essential for achieving epidemic control, and will continue to play an important role as countries shift to maintaining control of the epidemic. However, as countries continue to face fiscal constraints for human resources for health, sustainable financing for these health workers will require going beyond the public sector. The private sector has not yet been fully tapped to employ health workers for the delivery of HIV services, creating an opportunity to leverage private providers to recruit healthcare workers and maintain their employment outside of donor funding.
This animated video breaks down four ways to better engage the private sector workforce for HIV/AIDS services.
This video also gives an example of Digital Dispensaries from Glocal Healthcare, an AMS partner, as a means to help solve problem of accessibility, affordability and accountability of healthcare.
