Alliance and Guardian launch new health workforce website ahead of Forum

Guardian's microsite on health workers

The Global Health Workforce Alliance announces the launch of a microsite, developed in partnership with the Guardian, to highlight and raise awareness of the global health workforce crisis ahead of the Second Global Forum on Human Resources for Health, in Bangkok, 25-29 January 2011.

The microsite offers a range of striking stories and features on the oustanding health workers and successful case stories nominated for the HRH Awards. Sarah Boseley, health editor of the Guardian will moderate a session at the Forum and will also mentor the journalist fellows during the Forum.

Another attractive feature of the microsite is the interactive graphic providing key facts and figures on the 57 countries facing critical shortage of health workers.
