As the Fourth Global Forum on Human Resources for Health prepares for the opening sessions, CHW Central will post CHW-related sessions that relate directly to CHW issues that may be of interest to CHW Central members.
The Fourth Global Forum on Human Resources for Health--"building the health workforce of the future"--will be held in Dublin, Ireland, from 13 to 17 November 2017. The adoption of the Global Strategy on Human Resources for Health: Workforce 2030 and the work of the UN High-Level Commission on Health Employment and Economic Growth have made a bold economic case for investing in the health and social workforce and intensified intersectoral collaboration.
The Forum's main objectives:
- Advance implementation of the Global Strategy on HRH and the Commission’s recommendations towards achieving Universal Health Coverage and the Sustainable Development Goals.
- Promote innovations in policy, practice and research.
- Promote the engagement of HRH stakeholder groups in learning, knowledge sharing, networking and collaborative actions.
CHW-related sessions include:
Tuesday, November 14, 9:00 - 10:30 AM: Community-based Health Workers
Wednesday, November 15, 12:30 - 1:30 PM: Delivering Patient Centered Care: Moving from Policy to Implementation Using the CHW Model
