Please join us for our next bi-monthly conference call! The call will be held on Monday, April 11 from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. EST. An invited panel will discuss recent developments concerning the Global Code of Practice on the International Recruitment of Health Personnel. This is timely as public comments have been invited on the draft guidelines for monitoring the Code until April 17. John Palen (from the State Department’s Office of the Global AIDS Coordinator) and Pascal Zurn (WHO) will give a brief overview of the topic, and then a group of invited panelists, including Polly Pittman (George Washington University), Cheryl Peterson (American Nursing Association), Estelle Quain (USAID), and Anke Tijtsma (Denmark’s Wemos organization), will ask questions to generate discussion. You are welcome to submit comments and questions for the speaker; however, we ask that you submit them in advance so that the panel can present them to the speaker. This will allow us to keep things organized. Please e-mail questions for the speakers to APHA.Int.Hlth@gmail.com by Friday, April 8 at 8 p.m. EST. For more information on this topic, please refer to the APHA endorsement of the Code of Practice, WHO’s Global Code of Practice website, and APHA’s letter to the U.S. government indicating ways in which we could help with Code implementation.
