ISAGS participates in the Workshop on the Observatory of Human Resources, promoted by the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO/WHO).

Its main objectives are:

  • – Review achievements and difficulties in the development and use of the Observatory Network in recent years at the regional, subregional and country levels.
  • – Identify the conditions required for technical cooperation through the Observatory, which contributes to the Regional Strategy and the Action Plan for Human Resources for Universal Health.
  • – Prepare a work strategy to promote the strategic use of the Observatory in political decision-making: governance model, knowledge management model, technological and editorial model.
  • – Review the articulation and interoperability with other platforms.


The PAHO´s Observatory of Human Resources  was born from an interagency initiative in 1999, based on the identification of  deficits of information and analysis about the problems occurred with human resources around the sectoral reforms of the neoliberal decade. The mechanims was then created to fill these gaps in order to contribute to decision-making in the field.
