Public consultation on the WHO's 'Global Strategy on Human Resources for Health: Workforce 2030'

All WONCA members and member organizations are urged to respond to the online public consultation towards the development of a Global Strategy on Human Resources for Health. In May 2014, the 67th World Health Assembly requested the development of a new global strategy on human resources for health to be considered by the 69th World Health Assembly in May 2016. The draft strategy is now open for consultation until 31 August 2015.

It represents a critical component of the WHO strategic vision towards universal health coverage (UHC) in the framework of the post 2015 health development agenda. The draft will also be discussed at various global health events as well as a number of WHO regional technical consultations. This global dialogue will inform the continuing improvement of the draft and a final version to be submitted to the WHO Executive Board in January 2016.

It is vital that the role of family doctors and multidisciplinary primary care teams are highlighted in this strategy, we therefore urge all WONCA members to respond to the consultation.
