Stand Up for Health Workers
Date: 18 October - 8:30-9:30 am
Venue: Permanent Mission of Ireland, Geneva
Organizers: The Permanent Mission of Ireland to the UN and the Global Health Workforce Alliance
Organized by the Alliance and the Permanent Mission of Ireland to the United Nations in Geneva, the event “Stand Up for Health Workers” will serve as a platform to launch an initiative led by the Alliance, aimed at Permanent Missions’ health attachés.
This is the first in a series of meetings targeted at Permanent Missions. This event will serve to take stock of the progress in implementing the WHO Global Code of Practice on the International Recruitment of Health Personnel. Several related activities are proposed, such as sharing information and latest progress, initiatives and programmes, such as the Health Worker Migration Policy Council Innovation Award.
