Migration and women health workers - PDK

4 May, 2009
Public Services International (PSI) and its affiliated unions have prepared this kit to provide basic information on the facts, realities and issues concerning migration in the health sector. It is designed to help potential migrant health workers make an informed choice and to support unions that wish to assist health workers in making the right decisions.

PSI recognises the rights of individuals to migrate, whether temporarily or permanently, while considering that this decision should be based on equal opportunity for quality health care employment in their own country. PSI acknowledges the positive aspects of migration, but is increasingly concerned about the negative impacts on health care systems in developing countries, and its impact on health care workers.

The main objective of this kit is to promote workers’ rights by providing women health care workers with proper information, so they can make informed decisions and actively engage in union activities which improve workers’ lives.
