WHO | What do we mean by availability, accessibility, acceptability and quality (AAAQ) of the health workforce? Access Home Alt+0 Content Alt+2 Search Search Submit Language عربي 中文 English Français Русский Español Menu Global Health Workforce Alliance About the Alliance Members & partners Country responses Knowledge centre Media centre Global Forums What do we mean by availability, accessibility, acceptability and quality (AAAQ) of the health workforce? More Frequently asked questions Q&A index The current discourse on HRH is evolving from an exclusive focus on availability of health workers – i.e. numbers – towards according equal importance to accessibility, acceptability, quality and performance. Availability – the sufficient supply and appropriate stock of health workers, with the competencies and skill‐mix to match the health needs of the population; Accessibility – the equitable distribution of these health workers taking into account the demographic composition, rural‐urban mix and under‐served areas or populations; Acceptability – health workforce characteristics and ability (e.g. sex, language, culture, age, etc.)to treat all patients with dignity, create trust and promote demand for services; Quality – health workforce competencies, skills, knowledge and behaviour, as assessed according to professional norms and as perceived by users. Without sufficient availability – accessibility to health workers cannot be guaranteed; if they are available and accessible, without acceptability, the health services might not be used, when the quality of the health workforce is inadequate, improvements in health outcomes will not be satisfactory.

Article 5 Classification and quality status of bathing waters 1. As a result of the bathing water quality assessment carried out in accordance with Article 4, Member States shall, in accordance with the criteria set out in Annex II, classify bathing water as: (a) ‘poor’; (b) ‘sufficient’; (c) ‘good’; or (d) ‘excellent’. 2. (...) However, a Member State may introduce a permanent bathing prohibition or permanent advice against bathing before the end of the five‑year period if it considers that the achievement of ‘sufficientquality would be infeasible or disproportionately expensive.
