Timed to coincide with the first ever United Nations High-Level Meeting (UN HLM) on (UHC in September 2019, this report Protecting Populations, Preserving Futures: Optimising the health workforce to combat NCDs and achieve UHC”developed thanks to the support of Pfizer Upjohn, explores the optimal level of health workforce for NCDs across the continuum of care.

Recognising the relevance of effective primary care in the delivery of NCD services and in the attainment of UHC, the report draws from best practice case studies across the continuum of care as observed in different regions to present existing and novel strategies for optimizing the health workforce. It also depicts the main challenges and barriers faced by all countries, and notably, lower- and middle-income countries (LMICs) in their attempt to tackle the growing burden of NCDs in the context of significant, and in some cases dire, shortages in human resources for health.
