This document seeks to explain, in simple terms, what Personnel Projections are, how they can be used, who can use them, and when they are most helpful. It is based primarily on the experience of nine countries that undertook health personnel projections and subsequently utilized the results. It also includes the main issues discussed by representatives from the nine countries that undertook the projections, and who participaed in a WHO Workshop held in Harare, Zimbawe in December 1982. Readers should keep in mind that the country reports in Part 2 were written between July 1981 and November 1982. All statistics, figures and facts mentioned in the reports relate to this period. The contents of this document were consolidated and edited by Peter J. Shipp who, while employed by Management Sciences for Health, Boston, USA, worked on this task in his personal capacity.
