Promoting Decent Work Across Borders: A Project for Migrant Health Professionals and Skilled Workers

The International Labour Organization (ILO), with funding support from the European Union (EU), is to implement a programme called Promoting Decent Work Across Borders: A Project for Migrant Health Professionals and Skilled Workers.

When: 1 February 2011 - 31 January 2014

The International Labour Organization (ILO), with funding support from the European Union (EU), is to implement a programme called Promoting Decent Work Across Borders: A Project for Migrant Health Professionals and Skilled Workers.

The Project seeks to better understand schemes in line with the migration of health professionals. This will be done by engaging governments, trade unions, employers’ organizations into policy dialogues; establishing networks of experts and trained practitioners; strengthening employment services for health care professionals; facilitating skills recognition processes and enhancing labour market information systems. Though this Project, the ILO seeks to foster a “win-win-win” approach to migration that benefits the migrant workers, the source and destination countries within the rights-based framework for labour migration management.

The Project focuses its activities on three Asian countries with significant outflows of health professionals and skilled workers for foreign employment, namely: the Philippines, India and Viet Nam. Whereas the Philippines has been training nurses for employment abroad for many years, India and Viet Nam are now also looking into this strategy. These countries are actively pursuing cooperative agreement on hiring of health care professionals to various destination countries like European countries and North America.
