Fourth Global Forum on Human Resources for Health: The Power of Your Story: Call for Stories

The power of your story - Call for stories by health workers from around the world
Lives in their hands: Stories by health workers from around the world
19:15 - 21:00, 13th November 2017, Dublin, Ireland (Venue TBC)

Around the clock and in every corner of the world, health workers save lives, get people and communities back on their feet and economies growing. However, by 2030, the world will be facing a shortfall of 18 million health workers. We must act now to push for the action and investments needed to prevent this shortfall.

Are you a health worker or social care worker? Your experiences are an essential part of the work that is done and progress made every day in health - we want you to share your story and make your voice heard. Through your story, we want people to understand how important your work is, how you make a difference to the communities you serve and why we can’t achieve the Sustainable Development Goals without investing in people like you, the health and social workers that make universal health coverage possible.

At the 4th Global Forum on Human Resources for Health, the World Health Organization, Women in Global Health and Frontline Health Workers Coalition will organize a storytelling night in central Dublin: ‘Lives in their hands: Stories by health workers from around the world’ 19:15 - 21:00, 13th November 2017.

Write us, tell us about your work and share with us an important encounter from your community. Send us a brief description of your story by 20th October 2017. Selected candidates will be notified by 1st November 2017. If selected, your story will be audio and video recorded and shown throughout the Global Forum as well as disseminated online.

We can’t wait to hear your story.
