The International Centre on Nurse Migration Programme Coordinator, Mr. Nico Sciasci along with International Council of Nurses CEO, Dr. Isabelle Skinner and ICNM Secretariat and President & CEO of CGFNS International, Dr. Franklin Shaffer attended the two-day invitation only meeting to discuss the introduction of an International Platform.
The main objectives of the International Platform are to promote and facilitate knowledge exchange, connect discussions on health worker mobility to the larger debate on global migration and examine the policy measures that can be implemented along with their challenges and opportunities across the entire international community.
The opening session set the agenda for the two-day meeting, highlighting the ambitious and strategic partnership the World Health Organization (WHO), the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) have set out to accomplish with the release of an international platform on health worker mobility. The presentations by WHO directors, and other colleagues from international organisations, civil society and national governments brought to light the various complexities that exist when it comes to health workers aiming to achieve greater mobility. As an outcome, the multi-faceted issues must be faced through methods of greater awareness, adaptability, and above-all, cooperation.
