Third Global Forum on Human Resources for Health


November 10–13, Recife, Brazil

IntraHealth International is cohosting the Third Global Forum on Human Resources for Health, which is sponsored by the Global Health Workforce Alliance under the patronage of the Government of Brazil, the World Health Organization, and the Pan American Health Organization. The theme is “Rising to the grand challenge of human resources for health.” IntraHealth is managing a vital subtheme of the forum: “empowering health workers.”

Over 1,500 human resources for health (HRH) stakeholders will join together to elicit new HRH commitments from governments, donors, development partners, the private sector, and civil society; establish greater accountability to track, monitor, and report on those commitments; and more clearly link the HRH agenda to the Millennium Development Goals, universal health coverage, social determinants of health, the Rio+20 process, and the post-2015 development agenda.

IntraHealth International is a steering committee member of the Safeguarding Health in Conflict Coalition.
