Objectives To map out the Public Health Workforce (PHW) involved in successful public health interventions. Methods We did a pilot assessment of human resources involved in successful interventions addressing public health challenges in the countries of South-Eastern Europe (SEE). High-level representatives of eight countries reported about success stories through the coaching by experts. During synthesizing qualitative data, experts applied triangulation by contacting additional sources of evidence and used the framework method in data analysis. Results SEE countries tailored public health priorities towards social determinants, health equalities, and prevention of non-communicable diseases. A variety of organizations participated in achieving public health success. The same applies to the wide array of professions involved in the delivery of Essential Public Health Operations (EPHOs). Key enablers of the successful work of PHW were staff capacities, competences, interdisciplinary networking, productivity, and funding. Conclusions Despite diversity across countries, successful public health interventions have similar ingredients. Although PHW is aligned with the speciﬁc public health success, a productive interface between health and other sectors is crucial for rolling-out successful interventions.
