The HURAPRIM project will develop innovative interventions and policies and address the human resources in health (HRH) crisis. The objectives are to analyse the actual situation of HRH in Africa, to understand the complexity of the causes for the actual shortages in primary healthcare, to test interventions, strategies and policies that may improve the situation and to maximise networking and synergies. The interventions will target different levels (capacity building, recruitment and retention, task differentiation and cooperation with informal sector/traditional healers), will addresses (in various degrees of importance) aspects at the micro, meso and macro-levels and will be designed with involvement of all stakeholders, political authorities, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and especially the local population.
