A key principle of the IFGH is the belief that health is a basic human right and we strive to achieve equity of access & quality healthcare for all. The Forum recognises that the critical shortage of skilled health personnel is one of the greatest global health challenges today and during World Health Workers Week (Apr 8-12), we wish to highlight a number of relevant resources.

2012 Conference

The IFGH 2012 Conference discussed current global health workforce challenges and reflected on experiences and lessons learned from research and practice by Irish and international practitioners, NGOs, researchers, government agencies and the private sector, which can inform responses in Ireland and other countries.

The conference also discussed the WHO Global Code of Practice on the International Recruitment of Health Personnel and its implications for countries, including Ireland, in relation to better workforce planning, recruitment and retention, and to partnerships for strengthening health workforce capacity.

Read the IFGH Conference Statement from “The Global Health Workforce – Pathways to Health”.
