The global drive towards achieving universal health coverage (UHC) by improving access to affordable and effective care for all, cannot be achieved without a well-trained workforce, and having the right staff in the right place. This publication examines in depth the central and often-controversial issues of the international migration of health workers before and since the adoption of the WHO Global Code of Practice on the International Recruitment of Health Personnel. While the country response has had positive impact, there is still much to do to redress major inequalities in international migration of the health workforce.
