What is the Global Forum on Human Resources for Health?
To date, three global forums on human resources for health were convened setting the foundation for important developments in the health workforce agenda. The First Global Forum (Uganda, 2008) resulted in the development of a global roadmap for HRH development and originated the WHO Global Code of Practice on the International Recruitment of Health Personnel (the Kampala Declaration and Agenda for Global Action); the Second Global Forum (Thailand, 2011) called for increased investments, sustained leadership and adoption of effective policies on HRH; and the Third Global Forum (Brazil, 2013) concluded with the Recife Political Declaration on HRH: renewed commitments towards universal health coverage.
The 4th Global Forum on Human Resources for Health will be held in Dublin, Ireland from 13-17 November 2017. The forum, co-hosted by Trinity College, Dublin, Irish Aid, Department of Health, Ireland, Health Services Executive, World Health Organization and Global Health Workforce Network, will bring together a multisectoral group of actors, across the education, finance, health and labour sectors, as well as multilateral and bilateral agencies, academic institutions, health professional associations and civil society.
Participation at the Forum will be by subscription, with a number of sponsored places for participants from the Global South and subsidized rates for medical students and junior doctors. There will be approximately 700-800 participants for this year.
