Migrant workers

Promoting decent work across borders: A Philippine based project for migrant health professionals and skilled workers (This project is funded by the European Union)

The migration of healthcare professionals raises concerns from both source and host countries. Health professional mobility impacts the performance of health systems by changing the composition of health workforce and outcomes in both sending and receiving countries.

The project seeks to better understand schemes in line with circular migration of health professionals. This is done by engaging governments, trade unions and employers organizations as well as professional organizations into policy dialogues, establishing networks of experts and trained practitioners, strengthening employment services for healthcare professionals and skilled workers, facilitating skills recognition processes, and enhancing labour market information systems.
