Bulgaria Health Sector Labor Adjustment Strategy
Emerging Markets practice
Deloitte provided human capital consulting services to an agency in the Government of Bulgaria that was charged with providing free health services to its citizens. Project activities focused on a situational analysis, a labor adjustment strategy for excess staff in the health sector, and building capacity to plan and evaluate human resource needs in the health sector.
Bulgaria spent 45 years as a socialist economy, making a number of public sector reforms after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Health care reforms began in 2000 but led to declining employment conditions for health care workers. Through a World Bank project, Deloitte was tasked with assisting the Government of Bulgaria in creating a Health Sector Labor Adjustment Strategy both to address maladjustments in Bulgaria's health workforce and to build capacity of Bulgarian institutions to properly plan and evaluate the need for human resources in the health sector.
Deloitte worked closely with the client to conduct the following activities in support of Bulgaria's Health Sector Labor Adjustment strategy:
Deloitte provided a final report with recommendations for human resource training programs and for improving the distribution of health professionals to achieve more equitable access to care and to reduce the provision of redundant services. Furthermore, Deloitte's model and capacity-building activities left the Government of Bulgaria better prepared to plan and evaluate their human resources needs in the health sector long after the project team left.
