Migrant health professionals and skilled workers

Promoting decent work across borders: A Philippine based project for migrant health professionals and skilled workers: Final project fact sheet

Migration trends had shown that skilled nurses and other health professionals while vital, were also globally scarce.

Through this project, the International Labour Organization (ILO) sought to facilitate an approach to migration that benefits the migrant workers, the source and destination countries within a rights-based framework for labour migration governance. The project focused its activities on three Asian countries concerned with the outflows of health professionals and skilled workers for foreign employment, namely: the Philippines, India and to a lesser degree, Viet Nam.
