Workforce Observatory

What we know: Africa’s specialist children’s nurses are a valuable resource. To make informed decisions, employers and service planners need accurate workforce information. We need to establish the systems and capacity to accurately monitor the children’s nursing workforce, working towards informed national workforce planning and training strategies.

What we are doing: We are working to support national ministries of health and education and nursing regulatory bodies through annual surveys and reports, by collecting and reporting on the numbers of children’s nurses available to the workforce, the numbers in practice, training outputs and deployment.
