Fourth Annual World Health Workers Week

#HealthWorkersCount: The backbone of global health goals
1 April 2016

For the fourth consecutive year, the Global Health Workforce Alliance is pleased to join forces with civil society partners- the Frontline Health Worker Coalition and the Health Workforce Advocacy Initiative to bring you World Health Worker Week, which will run from April 3-9. The Fourth Annual World Health Worker Week is yet another opportunity to mobilize communities, partners and policy makers in support of health workers worldwide. We are pleased to invite all HRH stakeholders, GHWA members and partners 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 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 that health workers count. We also appreciate your support in helping disseminate this toolkit and related material, so that many more people around the globe can honour and celebrate a vital workforce!
