At Wemos, we wish to see that that everyone, everywhere, has access to skilled, motivated and properly supported health workers. However, the global health workforce is unevenly distributed, leading to critical staff shortages in many countries. It is expected that by 2030 there will be a shortage of more than 10 million health workers, particularly in low- and lower-middle income countries.
We therefore analyse health workforce policies and strategies and propose changes to national and EU policymakers to improve them. We also engage with other civil society allies to (jointly) call on national and European policy makers as well as global health donors to create fair and effective health workforce policy.
