To identify human resource approaches that are being used to improve VMMC volume and efficiency, the authors looked at previous literature and conducted a program review. They identified surgical efficiencies, non-surgical efficiencies, task shifting, task sharing, temporary redeployment of public sector staff during VMMC campaign periods, expansion of the health workforce through recruitment of unemployed, recently retired, newly graduating, or on-leave health care workers, and the use of volunteer medical staff from other countries as approaches that address human resource constraints.Curran K, Njeuhmeli E, Mirelman A, Dickson K, Adamu T, et al.
