HUAMAN-ANGULO, Lizardo; LIENDO-LUCANO, Lindaura; NUNEZ-VERGARA, Manuel  and  EQUIPO TECNICO DE LA DGGDRH. Plansalud: Decentralized and agreed sector plan for the capacity development in health, Peru 2010-2014. Rev. perú. med. exp. salud publica [online]. 2011, vol.28, n.2, pp.362-371. ISSN 1726-4634.

Human resources are the backbone of health sector actions; however, they are not necessarily the area with the greatest attention, therefore, the Ministry of Health of Peru (MINSA) together with regional governments, led the Decentralized and Agreed Sector Plan for the Capacity Development in Health 2010-2014 (PLANSALUD) with the aim of strengthening the capacities of Human Resources for Health (HRH) and contribute to health care efficient development, quality, relevance, equity and multiculturalism, in the context of descentralization, the Universal Health Insurance (AUS) and health policies. To achieve this goal, they have proposed three components (technical assistance, joint training and education - health articulation) that bring together an important set of interventions, which are planned and defined according to the national, regional and local levels, thus contributing to improve the government capacity, capability management and delivery of health services. This paper presents a first approach of PLANSALUD, including aspects related to planning, management, financing, structure and functioning, as well as monitoring and evaluation measures.
