Code of practice on the international recruitment of health personnel

Monitoring the implementation of the WHO global code of practice on the international recruitment of health personnel

In May 2004, the World Health Assembly (WHA) petitioned the World Health Organization (WHO) to develop-in consultation with its member States and all relevant partners - a code of practice on the international recruitment of health personnel as a global framework for dialogue and cooperation on matters concerning health personnel migration and health systems strengthening.

The objective of this consultation is to present the findings of the first round of monitoring of the global implementation of the WHO Global Code of Practice on the International Recruitment of Health Personnel (“the Code”), a voluntary code adopted in 2010 by all 193 member States of the World Health Organization (WHO).
