IntraHealth to Lead $300 Million USAID Project in Global Health Workforce, Systems Strengthening
Date:10/20/2009

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Oct. 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- IntraHealth International has been awarded a new 5-year global cooperative agreement, with a $300 million ceiling, by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to improve the quality of health services in the developing world by strengthening the health care workforce. Worldwide, there is a shortfall of 4 million health workers needed to increase access to critical primary health care services, and 57 countries fall short of the World Health Organization's minimum ratio of 2.3 health workers for every 1,000 people.

Under IntraHealth's leadership, the Human Resources for Health and Quality Services (HRHQS) Project will increase the quantity and quality of available health workers and services by working with global organizations and developing country institutions to test and roll out successful workforce planning, retention, recruitment, training and deployment interventions.

The HRHQS Project builds on the foundation established by USAID's investment in the Capacity Project, a 5-year global initiative, also led by IntraHealth, which worked in 47 countries around the globe to strengthen health systems and workforce planning, development and performance support.

"The HRHQS Project will serve as a catalyst at this critical juncture to further advance human resources for health knowledge and practice," says IntraHealth CEO Pape Gaye. "The ultimate goal is a more efficient and effective global health workforce that will reach more people and improve health status and quality of life, especially for the poor and most vulnerable."

The HRHQS Project will be led by Maurice Middleberg, who brings almost 30 years of experience to his new role. Mr. Middleberg joins IntraHealth from the Global Health Council, where he served as Vice President for Public Policy. He has also held positions at USAID, the Futures Group, CARE and EngenderHealth.
