CGFNS supports World Health Organization initiatives on global health worker mobility and learning recognition as it ramps up efforts to achieve ‘health for all.’

Our Work with the World Health Organization:

  • Consulting on the development of WHO Academy, a lifelong learning facility to upskill the global health workforce. CGFNS leads the quality standards and open certification management system workstream.
  • Developing a policy brief in support of the WHO Global Code of Practice on the International Recruitment of Health Personnel, which was modeled in part on our Alliance for Ethical International Recruitment Practices’ Voluntary Code.
  • Supporting other WHO initiatives, such as:
    • Year of the Nurse and Midwife
    • Working for Health
    • Global Health Workforce Network
While the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) causes concern around the world, we at CGFNS want to assure you that we are operating as usual. We are monitoring the situation and have systems in place to protect the health of staff as they continue to serve you in this difficult time. We encourage everyone to follow WHO and CDC guidelines.
