Watch back: webinar on missing pieces of health worker mobility data in Europe

The international mobility of health workers in Europe can enhance their career prospects and working conditions, and present solutions to health worker shortages in some countries. However, the geographical maldistribution of health workers between European ‘sending’ and ‘receiving’ countries is one of the risks that come with this international mobility. Data collection and monitoring of this mobility is therefore essential to understand what is happening. What are the missing pieces in this data? On 13 June we discussed this question during our Pillars of Health webinar. The recording is now available on our YouTube.

We presented the key findings of our cross-country analysis report on health worker mobility data (2010-2022). This was followed by an engaging and detailed discussion with our two panelists about health worker mobility data and related challenges and gaps.

Marlies Visser – Researcher at the Athena Institute, VU Amsterdam.
