Webinar – Health workers on the move: possibilities and perspectives ten years into the WHO Code. A civil society perspective

On August 19th, the Health Workers For All Coalition – which Wemos co-chairs – held a webinar. During this webinar, Wemos’ global health advocate Corinne Hinlopen and Genevieve Gencianos of Public Services International shared their insights on the ongoing review of the WHO Code of Practice on the International Recruitment of Health Personnel.

Corinne about the webinar: ‘Both me and Mr. Gencianos attended the Code review discussions in Geneva in June, so we could share our experiences and reflections. Professor Francis Omaswa, who is a member of the review committee, also joined the webinar and provided us with his own observations, while answering some of the many questions that were put forward by the participants. We look back on a fruitful exchange of views and ideas for future advocacy by the Coalition.
