Date of publication: July 2011

Summary: Following the Toronto Call for Action, a partnership was developed between representatives of the Jamaica Ministry of Health and a research team from the WHO/PAHO Collaborating Centre in Workforce Planning and Research at Dalhousie University in Canada that aimed to build capacity for needs-based Human Resources for Health (HRH) planning in Jamaica while informing HRH planning in Canada through knowledge exchange between both countries. Supported by Jamaica’s Ministry of Health (MOH) as well as Health Canada and the Pan-American Health Organization (PAHO), work on the project began in late 2007. The project is guided by a steering committee of key stakeholders in HRH from across Jamaica.
