Fifth Annual World Health Worker Week

(April 2-8)

The Global Health Workforce Network is pleased to join forces with civil society partners- the Frontline Health Worker Coalition to bring you World Health Worker Week, which will run from April 2-8. The Fifth Annual World Health Worker Week is yet another opportunity to mobilize communities, partners and policy makers in support of health workers worldwide. We invite all HRH stakeholders to celebrate the week by raising public awareness and engagement on health workforce issues, and recognize the lifesaving contribution of the health workforce.

All activities will be filtered through a World Health Worker Week portal , housed by the Frontline Health Worker Coalition. We encourage you to visit the portal and show your support and send in any contributions.

The attached toolkit and other associated material will provide some ideas that can help your organization encourage greater appreciation and support of health workers and show your community
