Workforce planning is the systematic identification, analysis and planning of future workforce needs, based on future population needs and health strategy and policy.
Workforce planning is key to achieving the goal of health policy and strategy for service delivery. It helps to ensure that services have right number of people, with the right skills and attitudes, doing the right work, at the right time, at the right cost, and with the right work output (World Health Organization, 2010).
