Third Annual World Health Worker Week : April 5- 11, 2015

  • Facebook

For the third consecutive year, the Global Health Workforce Alliance is pleased to join forces with civil society partners- Frontline Health Worker Coalition and the Health Workforce Advocacy Initiative to bring you World Health Worker Week, which will run from April 5-11. World Health Worker Week is an opportunity to mobilize communities, partners and policy makers in support of health workers worldwide. We are pleased to invite all HRH stakeholders, GHWA members and partners to celebrate the week by raising public awareness and engagement on health workforce issues, and recognize the lifesaving contribution of the health workforce.

All activities will be filtered through a World Health Worker Week portal housed by the the Frontline Health Worker Coalition.  We encourage you to visit the portal; show your support and send in any contributions.

The World Health Worker Week toolkit and other associated material will provide some ideas that can help your organization encourage greater appreciation and support of health workers and show your community that health workers count.

We appreciate your support in helping disseminate the toolkit and related material, so that many more people around the globe can honour and celebrate a vital workforce!
