IntraHealth Will Help Partners Meet Commitments On Health Workers

Discussing this week’s Third Global Forum for Human Resources for Health, Judith Winkler, senior adviser for strategy and planning at IntraHealth International, writes in the organization’s “Vital” blog, “[C]ountries from around the world will publicly declare what they will do to combat the global health worker shortage and increase access to health care for their citizens.” She continues, “Let’s make a commitment to health workers on the front lines of care, to the health workforce at all levels, and to the health of all people. Let’s promise to put skilled, motivated, and supported health workers within reach of everyone.” Winkler adds, “And when the forum comes to an end, [IntraHealth] will work with our country counterparts to help them to meet or exceed their commitments” (11/6).
