Webinar : Investing in Health Workers

On Friday 4 December 2020, the Dutch Global Health Alliance organized an online panel discussion entitled ‘Investing in Health Workers’. The aim was to provide the Dutch government with recommendations to further develop their investments in the health workforce.

'Education and Remuneration to Ensure Retention'

The panel consisted of an interesting mix of professionals from different sectors, with a shared passion for the health workforce, namely: Margaret Kilonzo (community health worker in Africa’s biggest slum: Kibera, Nairobi, Kenya), Maisa Elfadul (researcher and health systems analyst from Sudan), Ghassan Karem (physician and director of the Primary Health Care Institute in Libya) and Noortje Verhart (SRHR Portfolio Manager at the Dutch Embassy in Bamako, Mali). They each brought in their valuable and complementary perspectives on health workforce strengthening and their perceptions on the role of donors, which resulted in a fruitful and lively debate. This document linked below offers a summary of the discussion and the key recommendations.
