The Joint Action on Health Workforce Planning and Forecasting
Health workforce planning and forecasting is faced with a number of challenges, most notably a lack of consistent terminology, a lack of data, limited model-, demand-based- and future-based planning, and limited inter-country collaboration. The Joint Action on Health Workforce Planning and Forecasting aimed to move forward on the health workforce planning process and support countries in tackling the key challenges facing the HWF and HWF planning. The general objective of this action is a platform for collaboration and exchange between MSs to prepare the future of the health workforce planning. The Joint Action on Health Workforce Planning and Forecasting (2013-2016) received funding from the Health Programme of the European Union. The Babeș-Bolyai University in Cluj-Napoca is an associated partner in the Joint Action, representing Romania.
