* By WHO region. Health workforce refers to physicians, nurses/midwives, and other health workers.
** The number of health workers estimated to be “needed” to achieve the national health goal of UHC (universal health coverage) may not necessarily coincide with the demand for health workers due to economic capacity and other market conditions in the health system.
