PAHO/WHO partners with health authorities in Venezuela to pinpoint priorities for technical cooperation in human resources for health.

In March 2024, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) conducted a country mission to Venezuela in order to identify strategic areas for technical cooperation in human resources for health (HRH). The focus of this mission was on policy development, distribution, attraction, and retention of HRH in priority health programs, particularly in primary health care.

During the mission, priorities for cooperation were established on key HRH issues such as governance, stewardship, and capacity building. PAHO and national authorities collaborated to establish a cooperation agenda that included these issues.

Benjamín Puertas, Unit Chief of Human Resources for Health at PAHO, highlighted the potential areas of support that PAHO could provide to Venezuela. These included updating HRH policies, enhancing HRH information systems, developing competencies through interprofessional education, and utilizing the Organization’s Virtual Campus for Public Health.

Puertas met with representatives of the Ministry of Popular Power for Health and the Direction of Integration and International Affairs during the mission. He also visited training centers and primary health care services to engage in discussions with directors and students.

This technical cooperation mission is part of PAHO’s broader efforts to strengthen human resources for health in the Region of the Americas.
