Summary: The outcome of the multiyear partnership between the Global Center for Health Economics at the School of Public Health, University of California Berkeley; the Africa Region Health, Nutrition and Population Unit of the World Bank; and the Human Development Department at the African Development Bank has produced an academically rigorous book that provides a new understanding of the human resource crisis in Africa. The tools and concepts in it have many applications to offer across low- and middle-income countries, making this book one that will be used around the globe. This book provides tremendous value to us, in providing an inventory of what works, providing tools to scale up health worker production and improve the distribution and performance of health workers, and negotiate the ins and outs of health markets in Africa. It provides lessons learned in Africa on the most recent country analysis, using state-of-the-art tools and new empirical results. This book will be useful to academicians, heads of human resources departments, researchers, the global international health community, and the community at large, who are helping African governments design better policies for human resources development.
