Health workers are the most valuable assets of the health system as it is a labor-intensive service industry. There is, however, a continuing shortage of health personnel in the public health services in India which could undermine the country's efforts to fulfill the Millennium Development Goals. Health Policy and Planning has been shaped by the recommendations of various expert committees set up by the Government from time to time. These committees recognized the importance of human resources in health (HRH) and made important recommendations. This paper attempts to comprehensively review the evolution of policies and strategies for the development of HRH in India.
