The Global Health Workforce Alliance recently announced a photo competition for its upcoming Third Global Forum on Human Resources for Health in Recife, Brazil.

Professional and non-professional photographers worldwide participated in the contest under the theme “a day in the life of a health worker.”

Over 200 entries from around the world were received. An impressive panel of judges with expertise in the fields of photography, journalism, media and communication as well as human resources for health evaluated the entries based on relevance to the contest theme, power of the message, creativity and technical quality.
