Excerpt
A WHO Study Group on the Role of Research and Information Systems in Decision-Making for the Development of Human Resources for Health met in Geneva from 13 to 17 November 1989. The meeting was opened by Dr E. Goon, acting Assistant Director- General and Director, Division of Health Manpower Development, who welcomed participants on behalf of the Director-General. Dr Goon recalled that another WHO Study Group, on Implementation of Integrated Health Systems and Health Personnel Development, had met the previous week ( I ) . Many issues remained to be resolved in human resources: he hoped that the Group would be able to decide on ways of improving decision-making for the development of human resources for health (HRH) in order to contribute to the resolution of those issues. The Group would consider the type of information needed for decision-making and whether problems were due to a lack of such information, a lack of research to provide it, or a lack of systems to link information and decision-making.
