Building the health workforce of the future- Dublin
Welcome to the Fourth Global Forum on Human Resources for Health, in Dublin, Ireland!
The Forum will discuss and debate innovative approaches to avert a potential 18 million health worker shortfall and shape increasing demand for additional health and social workforce jobs.
The Forum is intersectoral and will welcome participation from a range of actors across sectors such as education, health, labour/employment and finance. It is the largest open conference on human resources for health related issues and is expected to gather over 1,000 delegates from across the globe.
Last year brought forward a wave of exciting opportunities to markedly change the global health workforce situation.
The Global Strategy on Human Resources for Health: Workforce 2030 and the UN High-Level Commission on Health Employment and Economic Growth’s report, Working for Health and Growth present a vital road map to ensure an adequate, fit for purpose and sustainable workforce to address current and future needs. Together, they make the case for more and better investments, with strengthened engagement across education, employment, finance, health and labour sectors fundamental.
The Fourth Global Forum on Human Resources for Health provides a key opportunity for all stakeholders to discuss and debate innovative approaches towards advancing the implementation of the Global Strategy and the Commission’s recommendations, and show a collective commitment to developing and making available the workforce required to deliver the SDGs
