Teaming up for more frontline health workers, better supported.
The private sector is already working in partnership with national governments and local organizations to educate and train health workers at various levels of the health care system. A number of these corporations are now coming together to support the objectives of the Frontline Health Workers Coalition and the U.S. government’s Global Health Initiative (GHI) in the global effort to meet the one million health worker shortage, as well as the health-related Millennium Development Goals.
A new partnership between the private sector and the U.S. government has been formed to work alongside non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in the developing world with the objective of helping increase the numbers of health workers recruited into the profession at all levels, helping increase retention rates of existing health workers, and helping improve standards of care are by encouraging health worker re-skilling. In addition, firms will help promote the role and cause of frontline health workers to policy makers and other audiences around the world.
Working together, the US Government’s GHI, the Coalition’s NGO partners and the private sector, can achieve a coordinated policy and program approach to an effective health workforce development strategy and express to policy makers around the world the impact that health workers are having every day on the lives of families.
