As estimated by the world Health Organisation by the year 2030 the global economy is projected to create around forty million new health sector jobs mostly in the middle and high income countries and despite the anticipated growth in jobs there shall be projected shortage of fifteen million health workers to achieve the sustainable development goals in low and lower middle income countries. The United Nation’s Commissions on Health Employment and Economic Growth with a focus on building resilient health systems stresses upon strengthening the health workers and urges to ensure effective health employment.
Considering the age as a factor, India is one of the youngest countries of the world. By the year 2020, with sixth – four per cent of the population in the working age group, India is set to experience a dynamic transition as the population durden of the past turns into a demographic dividend. The rising global demand and need for health workers, over the next decade, presents significant challenges nationally as well as offers the opportunity to generate employment not only to meet the demands but also to cater the global market.
Health workforce in Indian healthcare system has been defined with focus limited to few cadres such as doctors, nurses and frontline workers, wherein, several other healthcare professionals, have remained unidentified , unregulated and underutilized. The persistent demand for a regulatory framework to ensure appropriate regulation and standardization of such professions have been seen for several decades. In the last six years, over fifty allied and healthcare professions have been identified whose potential may be utilized in improving the access to care and all those professions are globally regulated professions .
With the advancement in the health sector, changing preferences of consumer and provider, it is now warranted to create a fresh vision of healthcare delivery with a patient centric approach and focus on moving to multi-disciplinary team-based care. There is a need to implement new ways of using health workers, strengthening the workforce by testing task shifting models and improving and increasing access to quality services through qualified and competent set of allied and healthcare professionals.
