RIGOLI, Felix; ROCHA, Cristianne Famer  and  FOSTER, Allison Annette. Critical challenges for human resources in health: a regional view. Rev. Latino-Am. Enfermagem [online]. 2006, vol.14, n.1, pp.7-16. ISSN 1518-8345.

This text presents the context and background, the methodology and some of the main results of the regional consultation on the critical challenges for human resources in health in the Americas. The Consultation, carried out in June and July 2005, was part of the strategy of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO/WHO) for the organization of the VII Regional Meeting of the Observatories of Human Resources, held in Toronto (Canada). The main results and suggestions by the actors consulted with regard to the role of international cooperation in the countries of the Region are presented, so that the countries and international agencies can better formulate common strategies of development and strengthening of the work force in health.
