For future leaders in public health
A competent and dynamic health workforce at the heart of each health system is essential to advance global health goals. Countries need a pool of health professionals trained and exposed to the systems and processes in the health sector and who understand how stakeholders interact within the international health arena. This Webinar is set out to help WHO engage with students and recent graduates worldwide and offer them an inside look into WHO's internship programme.
