Second Global Forum on Human Resources for Health


The forum will be held January 25-29, 2011 in Bangkok Thailand. The principal theme is "Reviewing progress, renewing commitments to health workers towards MDGs and beyond." Building on this theme, the planned plenary sessions are:

  • Marking progress, forging solutions;
  • Leadership, governance and coordination for universal access to supported health workers; and
  • Innovations in HRH that support strengthening of Health Systems.

The Forum will build upon the successes achieved in Kampala and will provide a platform to review progress made in fulfilling the commitments outlined in the Kampala Declaration and the Agenda for Global Action. It will be an opportunity to further galvanize and accelerate the global movement on HRH towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals and Universal Health Coverage. Expected outcomes include:

  • Sustaining the global movement on HRH and sharing of knowledge and experiences;
  • Agreeing and understanding the progress made since Kampala through measured concrete examples of global and country actions; and
  • Coping with new and emerging issues and challenges requiring action and response. [adapted from GHWA website]
