Summary: This handbook presents the methodology for monitoring the Plan of Action on Human Resources for Universal Access to Health and Universal Health Coverage 2018-2023 of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO). Developed by PAHO in collaboration with the Andalusian School of Public Health (Spain), it defines and explains the objectives, indicators, and attributes of the three lines of action contained in the Strategy on Human Resources for Universal Access to Health and Universal Health Coverage and in the Plan of Action. It is intended for the ministerial teams responsible for human resources for health in the countries of the Region of the Americas and for the PAHO advisers who accompany them in this process. The methodology will serve as a technical cooperation tool to help the countries of the Region measure and evaluate their progress toward fulfilling the Plan of Action. It will also help them identify the main challenges in their specific context, with a view to making the necessary decisions. The information obtained through this process will also serve as input for the progress report and final report on the Plan of Action, to be submitted to PAHO's Governing Bodies in 2021 and 2024, respectively.
