WHA77 Side Event—NCDs and Workforce Dynamics: Empowering Tomorrow's Health Workforce

Flyer for side event

The WHPA is pleased to be hosting a side event at this year’s World Health Assembly on NCDs and workforce dynamics. As the global NCD crisis continues to escalate, what does this mean for the workforce and what needs to be done to empower health professionals to tackle the problem? How crucial is the role of multi-disciplinary teams when addressing NCDs?

We are delighted to welcome two high-level speakers from the World Health Organization to expand on these questions.

  • Bente Mikkelsen: Director, Non-Communicable Diseases, WHO
  • Jim Campbell: Director, Health Workforce, WHO

The Q&A will provide participants with an opportunity to exchange with the leaders of the 5 major health professions represented by the WHPA, as well as the speakers.

The evening with close with a networking reception.
