Message from Dr. Mubashar Sheikh, Executive Director,
Global Health Workforce Alliance GHWA, 5 July 2011

Dear friends,

I am delighted to announce the selection of Wemos as the new host of the Health Workforce Advocacy Initiative (HWAI) Secretariat, with effect from July 2011. Wemos takes over from Physicians for Human Rights (PHR), that has served as the Secretariat for HWAI since its inception in 2007. 

Following the transition of PHR in January 2011, proposals to take over the hosting of the HWAI Secretariat were received from six organizations. After an extensive review process including a committee review by several HWAI members and internal review by the Alliance Secretariat, a final decision was taken by the Alliance to transition the hosting of HWAI to Wemos in the Netherlands. Wemos is a longstanding and active member of the Alliance and HWAI with an HRH and health for all focus, and a strong track record in global and country advocacy. I sure you will join me in congratulating Wemos on this prestigious appointment. The Alliance looks forward to working with the new host Secretariat and all HWAI members in driving forward HRH advocacy agenda.

I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank the other candidates for their applications and interest in hosting the HWAI Secretariat. It is our sincere hope that as members of the HWAI group -  your organization will continue to actively contribute to advocacy efforts in keeping human resources for health on the map and help secure the actions required to meet the goal of enabling everyone access to a motivated, skilled, and supported health worker.

Best regards

Dr. Mubashar Sheikh
