This chapter analyzes the growing demands of HIV/AIDS care on existing human resources for health (HRH). The pressures on these resources have multiplied and steered many national health systems into ever deeper troubled waters as a result of dire and aggravating human resource shortages and deficits. This is especially the case in those countries hardest hit by the epidemic, and with the recent scale-up of antiretroviral therapy (ART). The crux of the crisis is related to growing mismatches between demand and supply of human resources.
