The Human Resources for Health (HRH) Learning Hub aims to support transformation of Nigeria’s health workforce by providing access to learning, evidence and technical advice. 

One of the Learning Hub’s primary objectives is to advance knowledge and awareness on human resources for health issues.

As well as being a repository for information and resource centre, the Hub aspires to be a unit for promoting excellence and professionalism in human resources for health both within and outside of Kano State.

The HRH Learning Hub draws on the learning, knowledge and experience gained during the implementation of the UK aid-funded Women for Health programme.
