Many EU countries face the challenge of providing elderly care in the context of shortages of trained personnel. The Peer Review in Berlin (23-24 October) provided the opportunity for peer countries to explore the German approach of recruiting and training non-EU migrants.
Host Country: Germany
Date: 23-24 October 2013
Peer countries: Belgium - Croatia - Greece - Hungary - Poland - Romania - Slovakia - Slovenia - Spain - Sweden
Stakeholders: European Hospital and Healthcare Federation (HOPE), World Bank, German Marshall Fund (United States)
Ageing populations across Europe have led to increased demand for healthcare professionals. Although mobility within the EU is one method of meeting increased demand, it can drain other Member States of much-needed staff. Germany is therefore recruiting and training non-EU migrants in compliance with the WHO Global Code of Practice on the International Recruitment of Health Personnel.
