The International Health Facility Assessment Network (IHFAN) wrote chapter 7 of WHO's "Handbook on monitoring and evaluation of human resources for health, with special applications in low- and middle-income countries."

“The book is the first of its kind and very timely as the world is grappling with how to strengthen HRIS.” said MEASURE Evaluation M&E Specialist Bolaji Fapohunda.

The Handbook offers health managers, researchers and policy makers a comprehensive and standard reference for monitoring and evaluating human resources for health. It brings together an analytical framework with strategy options for improving the health workforce information and evidence base, as well as country experiences to highlight approaches that have worked.  A joint publication of the World Health Organization, World Bank and United States Agency for International Development, it is available in English, French and Spanish. (A Portuguese version is also forthcoming.)

Copies can be ordered from WHO Press at http://www.who.int/bookorders. In addition, electronic versions of the Handbook are available for free download via the WHO Library database at http://dosei.who.int.
