The Brain Drain to Brain Gain- Supporting the WHO Code of Practice on the recruitment of health personnel
The Brain Drain to Brain Gain Supporting the WHO Code of Practice on the recruitment of health personnel project is aimed at generating momentum and accelerating progress in Code implementation, supporting the normative work undertaken by WHO on producing guidelines for minimum data sets and reporting requirements for Code implementation. The project is funded by the European Union and co funded by NORAD.
The action in this project is focused on supporting implementation of the Code proposing to work with 3 priority source countries (Uganda, Nigeria and India), 1destination country (Ireland) and a country that is both a source and destination for migratory flows of health workers (South Africa) to strengthen the evidence base on health worker migration in each specific context and to support efforts leading to better data availability to strengthen management. At global level, GHWA-WHO will provide technical support and adequate policy framework to facilitate the implementation process of the code. Their role is also to promote policy dialogue at international, regional and national level in order to inform and influence the decision-making.
