As a global leader in health workforce and systems strengthening, IntraHealth International is heading to the Fourth Global Forum on Human Resources for Health. The Forum offers an important opportunity for health workforce stakeholders and experts to consider successes, innovations, and challenges in light of two key recent “road maps” for progress: 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.

IntraHealth’s side events and presentations focus on a range of areas critical to ensuring an adequate, fit-for-purpose workforce, including governance and financing, data use for decision-making, and recruitment, deployment, and retention. And don't forget to stop by and visit us at booth #9 in the exhibition hall.
