In the 3rd Global Forum on Human Resources for Health, opened on Sunday (10), in Recife, the World Health Organization (WHO) warned that the overall strength of the health sector will have a deficit of 12.9 million workers by 2035 .

The event brings together more than 1300 officials from 85 countries to discuss Universal Health Coverage

The WHO predicts that sub-Saharan Africa records the highest deficits of these professionals. Performance should be similar to Asia.

According to figures released by the UN agency, at least 83 countries have yet to reach a proportion of 23 basic health care for 10,000 people.

Among the challenges for the region are the education and training of workers in the area. The data contained in the report "The Universal Truth: No Health without a Work Force", released this Monday.

In total, 47 countries in sub-Saharan Africa there are only 168 medical schools. These, 11 can not have a medical school and 24 have only one.

The WHO states that if nothing is done by governments and authorities, this situation will have serious implications on the health of billions of people around the planet.

The report cites several reasons for the lack of workers as reform or change jobs in search of better wages. Furthermore, the document says there young enough to enter the profession or be formed to work.

To avoid future problems, the Global Forum recommends, among other things, that countries adopt mechanisms for employee participation in the development and implementation of policies for the sector.

The healthcare industry has experienced an increasing demand due to an increase in diseases such as cancer, strokes and heart problems.

According to research, the healthcare industry still suffers a lack of over 7.2 million employees globally.
