Migration case studies – call for proposals for dynamic researchers
With the adoption of the voluntary WHO Global Code of Practice on International Recruitment of Health Personnel (the Code) in 2010 by the World Health Assembly (WHA), member states agreed that concerted efforts are needed to better manage the migration of health workers to achieve the higher goal of increasing access to health workers for all. The Code aims to establish and promote voluntary principles and practices for the ethical international recruitment of health personnel and to facilitate the strengthening of health systems.
The Alliance has launched a request for proposals from qualified contractors to research and develop case studies on successful policies to address health workforce migration. The development of these case studies will contribute to the literature by providing empirical evidence from selected countries and advance implementation of the Code by limiting the negative effects generated by the movement of health professionals.
