CGFNS International, Inc., the world’s largest credentials assessment organization for Human Resources for Health (HRH), is proud to announce the publishing of a case study on CGFNS’ Alliance Code for Ethical International Recruitment Practices in the Human Resources for Health Journal, a division of BioMed Central- Open Access Publisher.
The case study was written by Dr. Franklin A. Shaffer, President & CEO of CGFNS International, Inc., along with Mukul Bakhshi, Esq, Director of the CGFNS Alliance, Dr. Julia To Dutka, Strategist and Dr. Janice Phillips, Director of Governmental and Regulatory Affairs, to discuss the benefits and challenges of a voluntary, multi-stakeholder agreement on best practices to promote ethical recruitment of migrant healthcare professionals. The case study also provides insight into the factors affecting the migration of human resources for health and the relevancy and effectiveness of the WHO Code in conjunction with efforts such as the Alliance Code.
The projected significant increase in migrant healthcare professionals, particularly in the nursing profession, is a key factor for why implementation of the Code for ethical international recruitment practices is needed. By facilitating the adoption of and compliance with a set of standards, the CGFNS Alliance Code complements the WHO Global Code of Practice and advances its impact. The full case study is available by visiting:

This course introduces participants from the health care sector to gender based violence (GBV), including global epidemiology of GBV, health outcomes, seminal research, policy and ethical guidelines, and clinical best practices for GBV prevention, support and management.
About the Course:
This course is planned to be the first of several focusing on gender based violence. We will provide a core curriculum and then, given the wide variability in local circumstances among countries, both in regard to the organization of their health systems and the availability of resources to deliver the recommended interventions, contextualize that content to specific geographical regions of the world. This first offering provides a case study on India and is guided towards participants working in the health care sector. A core curriculum introduces a global perspective on gender based violence (GBV), including global epidemiology of GBV, health outcomes, relevant research, policy and ethical guidelines, and clinical best practices for GBV prevention, support and management, including review of the new World Health Organization guidelines on responding to violence with Dr. Claudia García-Moreno. Our colleagues who work in India, Dr. Bushra Sabri, Prof. Anuradha Kapoor, Dr. Ravi Verma, Dr. Anita Raj and Dr. Suneeta Krishan, and Padma Bhate-Deosthali will provide expertise around these issues in the context of India.

What is an ethical partnership? How can we create ethical partnerships that support communities and the students who serve or train in them? How can students and institutions, through their work and learning paradigms, empower these communities?
This collaborative NAFSA Global Learning Faculty Conversation will feature the editor of Developing Global Health Programming: A Guidebook for Medical and Professional Schools, published by Global Health Education Collaborations Press.
Throughout the conversation, presenters and participants will be able to:
- Explore questions about ethics related to service learning and how to develop ethical partnerships;
- Examine how service-learning programs can provide global learning experiences and empower communities;
- Share experiences and best practices with global service learning in the fields of healthcare and applicable disciplines.
Faculty Conversations are designed for faculty members, academic leaders, researchers, and international educators interested in student learning outcomes and the educational experiences—curricular and cocurricular—created to help students gain and practice global knowledge, skills, and perspectives.
Take advantage of this special and stimulating conversation and join NAFSA’s growing community of practice focused on global learning.

In order to position the IRC for success in its commitment to gender equality, the organization will carry out a gender opportunity analysis (GOA) of current leadership, policies, structures, programs, and organizational culture. The purpose of the GOA will be twofold:
