26 Sep Building the Future Health Workforce 2030: Opportunities for Youth Employment in Health
There are 71 million unemployed youth in the world, while WHO’s Global Human Resources for Health (HRH) Strategy: Workforce 2030 estimates that 40 million new health jobs will be created by 2030. How can health employers adapt positive youth development approaches to build and support the future health workforce?
HRH2030 proposes a framework that demonstrates optimal partnerships for engaging and preparing youth to become the future health workforce, with a vision to achieve Workforce 2030 goals and other SDGs including reduced poverty, quality education, reduced inequalities, decent work, gender equity, and health for all. We include an example of how GE Healthcare has partnered with educators and employers in India to support youth in health jobs.
