1. BACKGROUND
In order to respond to Mozambique challenges and constraints, the Ministry of Health (MISAU), with the support of external co-operation partners, has developed a plan which is wide-ranging and ambitious-yet realistic-for human resource development in the health sector (National Health Human Resource Development Plan 2008-2015 - PNDRHS). The plan includes the national priorities identified in the National Health Policy and in the current Strategic Plan for the Health Sector, and will provide continuity to the previous human resource development plans of 1992-2002, 2001-2010 and 2006-2010.
The plan has the following objectives:
Contribute to achievement of the Millennium Development Goals;
Improve the training capacity of the Ministry of Health;
Reduce the deficit as regards human resources in the health area
Reduce the inequalities between provinces as regards human resources in the health area;
Correct the intra-provincial distortions and those between districts;
Improve the quantitative and qualitative performance of the human resources in the health area;
Achieve retention of the work force within the National Health System;
Improve the definition of the regulatory duties of the human resources in the health area within the health services system.
The achievement of the plan's eight objectives will be facilitated through general and cross-cutting strategies which include:
Build the capacity of individual managers, regulators, service managers, and providers, i.e., support procurement and improvement in terms of expertise, competencies, and attitudes;
Strengthen organizational capacities, e.g., the operation of information systems; monitoring, supervision, and evaluation processes; the availability of management; decision support; and resource mobilization tools;
Develop professional and financial subsidies and incentives packages to stimulate the performance of all cadres and to mobilize individual and institutional willingness to support the achievement of the proposed objectives and targets; and
Create an adequate institutional environment through changes in the legal and regulating framework to facilitate attainment of the proposed targets.
The PNDRHS identifies four strategic lines of approach, identified and characterised within four packages:
Organize NHS services and normative framework;
Improve management capacity at all levels of the NHS;
Improve HHR distribution, motivation, and retention; and
Increase capacity of the initial production, post-graduate training, and in-service training networks.
PNDRHS Monitoring and Implementation Group (MI-PNDRHS)
To coordinate the implementation of the PNDRHS, a PNDRHS Monitoring and Implementation (MI-NPHHRD) group will be set up. The group, which will consist of a team of four multi-disciplinary senior technical staff, will work under the direct supervision of the National Director of Human Resources.

The following are some of the main tasks of the MI-PNDRHS:
Design and execute a Communication Plan for the different PNDRHS audiences. This plan shall use various resources, such as newspaper, radio, television, brochures, and posters, as well as new Web-based technologies.
Collaborate with the soon to be established Health Human Resources Observatory. The goal of the Health Human Resources Observatory is to promote and incentivize evidence-based Health Human Resources strategies and interventions and develop capacity to evaluate and monitor the Health Human Resources situation.
Promote and validate planning exercises in several provincial settings, maintaining a macro view of the Mozambican reality.
Establish agreements and partnerships with public services to ensure access to necessary and adequate resources for the implementation of PNDRHS activities.
Create a technical assistance plan for the PNDRHS, allocating parts of the management of this plan to different stakeholders involved in its implementation.
