WHO is working to ensure that everyone has access to quality health care.
In many countries, there is little money available to spend on health. This
results in inadequate hospitals and clinics, a short supply of essential
medicines and equipment, and a critical shortage of health workers.
Worse, in some parts of the world, large numbers of health workers are
dying from the very diseases which they are trying to prevent and treat.
WHO works with countries to help them plan, educate and manage the
health workforce, for example, by advising on policies to recruit and retain
people working in health.
