Examining Need For Investment In Global Health Workforce

Noting the Third Global Forum on Human Resources for Health took place this week in Recife, Brazil, “where countries and organizations presented their commitments to strengthening the health workforce,” Sarah Dwyer, communications manager at IntraHealth International, examines in the organization’s blog the need to invest in the global health workforce. She states, “Health workforce investments do not typically show results overnight, and in today’s world of instant gratification, advocating for long-term investments can be a challenge,” and highlights a new book called “Transforming the Global Health Workforce” (11/14).
