Global Health Workforce Network

The Global Health Workforce Network is a global mechanism for stakeholder consultation, dialogue, and coordination on comprehensive and coherent health workforce policies operating within WHO. It supports the implementation of the Global Strategy on Human Resources for Health and the recommendations of the UNSG’s High Level Commission on Health Employment and Economic Growth.

Gender Hub: The WHO Global Health Workforce Network (GWHN) thematic hub on Gender Equity in the Health and Social Workforce was launched in November 2017 to address gender inequities and biases in the health and social workforce. The Hub is currently bringing together available experience and evidence on gender inequities and occupational segregation issues across the education, training, employment and career progression of health and social workers.
