  13. 13. • However, attempts to establish such a network have been unsuccessful because substantial socioeconomic and geographical inequities in access to health care and health outcomes.
  14. 14. • Health manpower requirement of the of the country are based on • 1. Health needs and demands of the population and • 2. desired output.
  15. 15. • Health manpower planning is an important aspect of community health planning. • It is based on series of accepted ratio like – • - Doctor- population ratio. • - Nurse- population ratio. • - Bed- population ratio.

  19. 19. Health Manpower in some countries 2005-2011 (World Health Statistics 2012) COUNTRY DOCTORS Per 10000 population NURSES and MIDWIFES BEDS Per 10000 population 1 INDIA 6.5 10 9.0 2 BANGLADESH 3.0 2.7 3.0 3 SHRI LANKA 4.9 19.3 29.0 4 THAIAND 21.0 53.0 21.0 5 MYANMAR 4.6 8.0 6.0
  20. 20. HEALTH MANPOWER OF INDIA (As on March 2011) CATEGORIES IN POSITION 1 Doctors in PHCs 26,329 2 ANM at Sub centre and PHCs 207,868 3 MPW (Male) 52,215 4 Nurse midwife 65,344 5 Radiographer 2221 6 Pharmacist 24,671 7 Lab technicians 16,208
  21. 21. However average number of health care staff are satisfactory on national basis, but they vary widely within the country. There is also mal-distribution of health manpower between rural and urban areas.
  22. 22. • This mal-distribution is due to - Absence of amenities in rural areas. - Lack of job satisfaction . - Professional isolation. - Lack of rural experience. - Inability to adjust in rural life.
  23. 23. • Studies in India have shown that there is concentration of doctors in urban areas is up to 73.6 % where only 26.4 % population live. • While the rural population (72%) remains largely underserved. (Task force on Medical Education, 2006)
  24. 24. 1.Availability for recruitment.. • 1.There are insufficient institutions in most states. • 2.70% seats concentrated in six states – 30% of seats in rest. • 3.For specialists an estimated 10% migration and increasing private sector preference.
  25. 25. • 4.Available pool does not necessarily translate into public sector recruitment- more so if the expansion is in the private sector. • 5.There is a reluctance to join, if the posting is in remote areas. • 6.The ratio of women doctors joining is even less than of men.
  26. 26. 2.Product Does Not Match Requirements: • 1. Those who join are not from the underserved areas or social groups. - but relatively privileged persons who see medical education as best way to break out of their social class or retain existing class status. • 2. Even those who join with noble motives, change through the educational process into “objective” professionals. - more interested in the disease than in the patient..
  27. 27. 3. There no faculty development programmes. 4. Growth in the private sector is particularly haphazard and of very poor quality. 5. Skills they learn are not appropriate nor is the quality as desired.
  28. 28. • 7. Focus is on knowledge and certification – little on skills. • 8. There is often no match between skills required and skills imparted.
  29. 29. 3.Poor Quality of In- service Capacity Building … • 1. Multiple short duration fragmented training programmes. • 2. Little evaluation of training and no evaluation of whether training led to improved service delivery outcomes. • 3. No decentralized planning to ensure that all the facilities have the desired skill sets.
  30. 30. • 4. No continuing medical education programmes. • 5.Weak training infrastructure.
  31. 31. 4. Workforce Issues • 1. Transfers, postings, promotions, disciplinary actions, pensions: - are they timely, transparent, fair and non discriminatory ? (One of the surest indicators of good governance) • 2.Issue of incentives… - Do those who work more or in more difficult circumstances get rewarded more… or - do they actually feel penalized and discriminated against!!
  32. 32. • 3. Inadequacy of compensation package…. Both financial and non financial.. • 4. Lack of a career path… • 5. Availability of positive role models and team leadership. • 6. Accountability.. …??? And accountability pyramids…
  33. 33. The center – state divide… • Health is a state subject and only family planning- (expanded into RCH) and a few disease control programmes on the concurrent list. • Central manpower support assumes that the core manpower issues are managed by state and center needs only supplement manpower. • States constrained by lack of funds and most state funds being deployed for salaries and establishment.
  34. 34. 1. Lack of data • In India, there is no comprehensive information available on HRH for health facilities across public and private sectors. • Data available with professional councils for doctors, dentists, nurses and pharmacists are cumulative and do not exclude attrition (from death, retirement, migration, etc.), as there is no periodic renewal of registration.
  35. 35. 2. Skewed production of HRH • The distribution of medical colleges, nursing colleges, nursing and ANM schools, paramedical institutions is uneven across the states with wide disparities inequality of education.
  36. 36. • Six ‘high HRH production’ states (i.e. Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala, Maharashtra, Pondicherry and Tamil Nadu) represent 31% of the Indian population, but have a disproportionately high share of MBBS seats (58%) and nursing colleges (63%) as compared to the eight „low HRH production’ states (i.e. Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, Rajasthan, Uttaranchal and Uttar Pradesh), which comprise 46% of India‟s population, but have far fewer MBBS seats (21%) and nursing colleges (20%).
  37. 37. 3. Uneven HRH deployment and distribution • India‟s major limitation has been in the production and distribution of human resources across multiple levels of care. • Non-creation of posts at health facilities is pervasive.
  38. 38. 4. Disconnected education and training • Health curricula in the country have not kept pace with the changing dynamics of public health, health policies and demographics. • Current medical and nursing graduates in the country, trained in urban environments, are ill- prepared and unmotivated to practice in rural settings.
  39. 39. • There is an increased drive towards super specialization in various medical disciplines, further pushing the focus of care towards tertiary health models rather than essential primary care services.
  40. 40. • a. Regulatory: Insisting of rural service as pre-qualification to be considered for admission to post graduation courses or bonds which insists on doing rural service after the course.
  41. 41. • b. Workforce management: Transfer policies that provide for rotational posting in difficult areas and give preference to those who would work in a remote area of their own choice.
  42. 42. • c. Incentives- financial and non-financial. (CRMC scheme in CG) • d. Educational Strategies: Measures to preferentially admit only those students who are likely to serve in under- serviced areas and mould education to retain this commitment.
  43. 43. • e. Multi-skilling existing staff: • Introduction of three year course as rural medical assistants and posting of Ayush doctors.
  44. 44. 1.Creating the norms: The IPHS • two ANMs per sub-center and one male MPW. • Three nurses/ANMs per PHC plus two medical officers. • Adding AYUSH staff into available pool. • Nine nurses per CHC plus 5 specialists and 3 to 4 medical officers .
  45. 45. 2.Expanding available skilled human resource • More medical colleges- government and private and through public private partnerships. • More government seats in private medical colleges • More nursing schools & nursing colleges. • More technical and paramedical courses. • Reviving ANM and MPW training centers.
  46. 46. 3.Increasing availability in priority areas.. 1. Compulsory rural postings- pre- post graduation – eg Orissa, Chhattisgarh and Tamilnadu. 2. Contractual appointments . 3. fair transfer policy- rotational postings… tamil nadu.. 4. Incentives for difficult areas: eg Chhattisgarh, Himachal and Orissa.
  47. 47. 4.Community level service providers 1. ASHA: 4 lakh ASHAs - one of most visible components of NRHM. 2. Anganwadi worker- increasing her effectiveness as health care provider. 3. The RMP: Would training them help? 4. The traditional birth attendant: continuing role for the TBA where institutional delivery levels are low. 5. Community midwifes and maternity huts.
  48. 48. 5.Strengthening Capacity building activity… • Strengthening SIHFWs. • Developing an integrated training approach. • Need to redefine the role of SIHFWs/NIHFWs as apex of a pyramid of institutions that ensure that all the necessary skills required for quality service delivery are in place.
  49. 49. 6.Improving workforce performance.. • Putting an accountability framework in place: ▫ Hospital development committees. • Bringing in a cadre of health managers and data managers and financial managers. • Introducing health management courses and promoting health management certification for key posts. • Insisting on public health qualifications for key public health posts…!?!
  50. 50. Future challenges include - Planning for human resource for public health at State/national level, - Framing of State specific human resource development and training policy, - Creation of human resource management information system, - Reorientation of medical and para-medical education and - Ensuring proper utilization of the trained manpower and standardization of training.
  51. 51. The whys? 1. Why was HR not planned along with infrastructure ? 2. Why are so many institutions dismantled in the last decade? ANM training schools? MPW training schools? 3. Why are SIHFWs and RHFWTCs poorly functional? Why have district training centers fallen into disuse? 4. Why this very uneven growth of professional education? 5. Why Public Health Specialist are not posted in key managerial posts in Public Health departments.
