Abstract A special emphasis is placed in this paper on developing countries where series of constraints limit the provision of access to health care, including shortage of related skilled labor. The need of human resources in healthcare in relation to the deployment of new advanced health technologies is expressed in both developed and developing economies. Emergent and developed countries have generated new instruments to limit the negative effects of the constraints facing human resources in healthcare, while this process is quite new in developing countries. The expansion of access to new health technologies could be achieved within the world global health system framework requirements of increasingly needed human resources and skills are shown. Empirical evidence and data analysis are also provided and support the trends taking place in the health workforce in developing countries.
