Region: South-East Asia Scientific publication Strengthening governance and accountability, Coordinating services within and across sectors, Creating an enabling environment Source: Asia Pacific viewpoint

The growth of the international migration of health workers in recent decades has taken place in the context of the transnationalisation of healthcare provision as well as of governance and policy responses. This paper examines international policy responses to cross-border health worker migration in the Asia Pacific region. These include multilateral (global and regional) and bilateral policy agreements, policy dialogue, "circular" and key themes of health workforce planning and management.
