Geneva, 22 May 2013. The World Health Assembly side event organized by the Medicus Mundi International Network for the “Health workers for all and all for health workers” project and a broad group of co-organizers intended to inform the parallel WHA debate with a civil society perspective on successes and gaps of Code implementation, three years on since its adoption, and to present further initiatives focused on the management of health workers migration.

The event was attended by over 80 WHO Member States delegates, WHO representatives and civil society delegates. Starting with case stories of Code implementation, country leadership and civil society involvement from source and destination countries and regions, the event led to a general discussion and overall conclusions on the state of Code implementation and the management of health personnel migration.
