The Fourth Global Forum on Human Resources for Health - Building the health workforce of the future - will be held in Dublin, Ireland, from 13-17 November 2017. The Forum is intersectoral. It will welcome participation from a range of actors across education, health, labour/employment and finance sectors. It is the largest open conference on human resources for health related issues and is expected to gather over 1,000 delegates from across the globe.
The adoption of the Global Strategy on Human Resources for Health: Workforce 2030 and the work of the UN High level Commission on Health Employment and Economic Growth - have made a bold economic case for investing in the health and social workforce and intensified intersectoral collaboration.
The Forum program will feature high-impact decision-makers, leaders, and investors representing all stakeholder groups to discuss and debate innovative approaches towards advancing the implementation of the Global Strategy and the Commission’s recommendations. High level plenaries, side sessions and skills building workshops with exhibition areas, poster presentations, and much more will contribute to an exceptional opportunity for professional development and networking.
The Forum is convened by Trinity College, Dublin, Health Service Executive, Irish Aid, the Department of Health, Ireland, the World Health Organization and the Global Health Workforce Network. Co-sponsors include Member States and supporting organizations engaged in the work of the Global Health Workforce Network.
Day 1 will be held at London City Hall, with keynote and plenary discussion sessions, and will conclude with a reception at ‘London’s Living Room’.
