INTRODUCTION: The key question in developing human resources for health continues to be how to produce, deploy and retain an appropriately trained health workforce of the appropriate skill mix who can deliver the appropriate, affordable and equitable packages of health services designed by ministries of health as the basis of their health service delivery. The problems related to this are common to all countries. In post-conflict situations, the loss or displacement of experienced personnel, the destruction or degradation of training systems, and the complexity of the context within which reconstruction takes place exacerbates the problems (Macrae, 1995; Smith, 2001, 2002). The strategies to restructure a workforce largely depend on: the
Global Health furnishes me with the needed critical thinking skills and real world examples of what determines health, application of health concepts and ethical considerations in addressing public health problems.

These factors include the nature and extent of the problem, audience characteristics, available resources, and the communication environment. Through this data, factors can easily be identified and can be of great help to a stronger communication strategic plan for a health campaign.

There is the need to compare the shared vision with your understanding of the present situation, and there is a need to understand why there is a difference between the two.

Key trends include the recognition that messages on health behavior vary along a continuum from prevention to promotion and maintenance, as reflected by theories such as the trans theoretical model; the need for unified message strategies and methods of measuring reactions and outcomes and competition between health messages and messages that promote unhealthy behavior from product marketers and
Introduction Public accountability has re-emerged as a top priority for health systems all over the world. Public accountability refers to ‘the spectrum of approaches, mechanisms and practices used by the stakeholders concerned with public services to ensure a desired level and type of performance’ (Paul 1991). Although there is a range of possible definitions of accountability, the essence is of answerability between sets of actors in relation to specific activities or interventions. Answerability can be enforced with either positive or negative sanctions, or internalized ethics such as codes of conduct (Standing 2004).
