Caring for carers - a relevant concern? Globally sustainable and fair personnel policies for the Dutch health care sector

Globally sustainable and fair personnel policies for the Dutch health care sector: What does it mean in practice? The Netherlands-based organisation Wemos published a booklet intended for anyone directly or indirectly involved with the problem of impending staff shortages in the Dutch health care sector and similar sector shortages in other countries’ health care sectors. It outlines the possible effects of Dutch health personnel policy and Dutch foreign policy for global health. And we present a number of general recommendations for actions based on a multi-sector and multi-stakeholder approach. Ultimately, this publication is intended to encourage people and organizations involved in the training, recruitment, retention and deployment of personnel in the Dutch health care sector to work together and develop practical activities that will make a tangible difference to health worldwide. Suggestions for the specific parties involved are presented in the appendix of the booklet.
