The 29th World Congress of Public Services International (PSI), meeting in Durban, South Africa, on 27-30 November 2012

NOTING that

  1. The English-Speaking East and West sub-regions have continuously benefited from the support of the PSI Migration Programme.
  2. The PSI Migration Programme has reduced the attrition rate of health workers to an appreciable level in the sub-regions, particularly in Ghana.

FURTHER NOTING that

  1. Awareness of health workers about the Migration Programme and its benefits was high.
  2. There is a high demand from members for continuous sensitization on the migration of healthcare providers in the sub-region.

RESOLVES that

  1. The Migration Programme in Ghana and Kenya should be continued and expanded in Africa, because the sub-region has continuously benefited from the support of the Migration Programme.
  2. PSI should ensure its mandate on the Migration Programme e.g. to be spearheaded by affiliates from the health unions in the sub-region.
