H4+ is a joint effort by UNFPA, UNAIDS, UNICEF, UN Women, WHO and the World Bank, governments and civil societies of 58 countries with high burdens of reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child mortality and morbidity. In each country, H4+, Ministry of Health officials and partners team up to address the reproductive maternal, newborn and child health issues and help coordinate support for national maternal and newborn health policies and plans. In 20 of 58 countries, Canada, Sida, France and Johnson & Johnson provided key funding to support this collaborative work. The H4+ serves as the lead technical partners for the UN Secretary-General’s Global Strategy for Women’s and Children’s Health and the subsequent Every Woman Every Child movement.

Sexual, Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn and Adolescent Health (SRMNAH) Workforce Assessment Handbook is a tool to help countries streamline the process of assessing and identifying the gaps; build a strong SRMNAH workforce; and improve health systems that will provide high quality services for women, newborn and population health. 

The Handbook has been developed primarily for Ministries of Health and policymakers, but will also inform health leaders and managers, decision makers, educational institutions, regulatory agencies, international donor agencies, and funders of health services and health workforce education. It was developed as part of the High Burden Country Initiative and supported by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) on behalf of the H4+ agencies.
