The Global Health Workforce (HWF) Crisis; moving from conflict to collaboration

VISUAL PRESENTATION: https://youtu.be/wqdv7z0-6Q0

Introduction: The COVID -19 pandemic has exposed the global health workforce (HWF) crisis that is characterized by wide spread shortages, mal-distribution and poor working conditions. Today there is a silent scramble to recruit health workers from underprivileged countries by the wealthier countries. This is inspired by the urgent need to fill gaps in the scaled up COVID-19 responses and to address long standing HWF shortages. This unregulated HWF recruitment poses a threat to global health security and is unacceptable. Fortunately, we have a solution in the WHO Code on International Recruitment of Health Personnel (www.who.int/hrh/migration) which was adopted by the World Health Assembly in 2010.

This webinar will discuss the present situation and make the case for moving from conflict to collaboration in our common quest to enable access to a skilled, motivated and supported health worker for every person in every village everywhere.
