Welcome to the Fourth Global Forum on Human Resources for Health, in Dublin, Ireland!

The global community is presented with an unprecedented challenge and an opportunity: to avert a potential 18 million health worker shortfall and shape increasing demand for additional health and social workforce jobs. In doing so, we will make progress towards universal health coverage and global health security while also contributing to gains across the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (e.g. quality education, gender equality, reduced inequalities, decent jobs and inclusive economic growth).

Last year brought forward a wave of exciting opportunities to markedly change the global health workforce situation. The Global Strategy on Human Resources for Health: Workforce 2030 and the UN High-Level Commission on Health Employment and Economic Growth’s report, Working for Health and Growth present a vital road map to ensure an adequate, fit for purpose and sustainable workforce to address current and future needs. Together, they make the case for more and better investments, with strengthened engagement across education, employment, finance, health and labour sectors fundamental.

The Fourth Global Forum on Human Resources for Health provides a key opportunity for all stakeholders to discuss and debate innovative approaches towards advancing the implementation of the Global Strategy and the Commission’s recommendations, and show a collective commitment to developing and making available the workforce required to deliver the SDGs.

The Forum is co-hosted by Trinity College Dublin, Irish Aid, the Irish Department of Health and Health Service Executive, the Global Health Workforce Network and the World Health Organization.

We invite you to join us & WATCH LIVE on the 14-17 November 2017 to collectively help shape our future health workforce.
