Monitoring progress on the implementation of the WHO Global Code of Practice on the International Recruitment of Health Personnel
Health worker migration has been increasing worldwide over the past decades, especially from lower-income countries to higher-income countries, further threatening already fragile health systems. To address this challenge, the WHO Global Code of Practice on the International Recruitment of Health Personnel establishes voluntary principles and practices for the ethical international recruitment of health personnel and the strengthening of health systems.
WHO is seeking information from Member States on the implementation of the Code.
A self-assessment tool for countries
To monitor the progress made in implementing the Code, and in accordance with the request of the World Health Assembly (Resolution WHA63.16) a national self-assessment tool has been created for Member States. These assessments will enable WHO to examine the global status of health personnel recruitment and, where possible, explore time trends.
How to submit
WHO invites Member States to use a simple, user-friendly online form to monitor the implementation of the Code. The online form can be accessed and completed using an individual username and password, which will be sent upon request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for submitting reports is 15th June 2012.
