One of the most important of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is number eight. This goal is to “promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all”. Having appropriate work, health and safety at work as well as laws that protect us at work is integral. Healthcare and the healthcare workforce could not be a more appropriate space to take stock of the workforce challenges as we arrive at the midpoint on our drive to 2030 in terms of reaching the goals.

The healthcare workforce is experiencing the pressures of an ageing population coupled with greater needs due to communicable and noncommunicable diseases. The demand for health services has never been greater while the workforce is simply too small worldwide to continue to meet the need. In this webinar, we ask a panel of experts to address the question of whether the SDGs concerning workforce challenges, particularly in healthcare, can be delivered by 2030.
