The HRH Global Resource Center (GRC) is pleased to announce the launch of its Policy Advocacy Collection on health workforce issues. This important and often under-recognized area is a key component to addressing the health workforce crisis, and we are excited to offer the following resources to support policy advocacy work:
• a Policy Advocacy Subject Guide (http://hrhresourcecenter.org/sg_policy_advocacy) to introduce the issues
• a new interview series, as part of the GRC’s successful HRH Leaders in Action Interviews, that focuses on policy advocacy – the first interview, HRH Policy Advocacy Leaders in Action Interview with Mary Beth Powers (http://hrhresourcecenter.org/power) is now available
• an expanded collection of materials on policy, advocacy, national policy, organizational policy, health workforce issues in fragile environments, including conflict affected regions and natural disaster affected regions as well as materials on workplace violence for health workers.

We encourage you to explore the new resources and to contact us (http://www.hrhresourcecenter.org/contact_us) with questions and suggestions.
