Michael Ssemakula: making analysis during the WHO-watchers’ workshop on the third round of reporting on the implementation of the Global code of practice on the international recruitment of health workers in the WHO regions.
Our PHM global network follows closely the work of WHO, both through the World Health Assembly and the Executive Board. A team of PHM volunteers attends WHO bodies’ meetings – following the debate, talking with delegates and making statements to the EB. The PHM’s commentaries covers most of the agenda items of the WHO bodies’ meetings and includes a note on the key issues in focus at the meeting, a brief background and critical commentary. Reports on key issues are also prepared. PHM is part of a wider network of organizations committed to democratizing global health governance and working through the WHO-Watch project https://www.ghwatch.org/who-watch/about. HURIC through its synergy with PHM was able to send a watcher from Uganda who also represented all the African PHM circles.
