Best Investment for a Healthier World

The Frontline Health Workers Coalition urges investment in frontline health workers in low- and middle-income countries.

World Health Worker Week: April 5 – 11 Policy Recommendations for COVID-19

Advocate now for frontline health workers!

Join us for World Health Worker Week—April 5 – 11, 2020—to rally support for frontline health workers around the world fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.  

We're calling for immediate policy changes and investment to surge the frontline health workforce, particularly in low- and middle income countries. Community health workers, nurses, midwives, doctors, and pharmacists serving communities must be sufficiently educated, recruited, trained, supported, equipped, and protected to respond to COVID-19 and other global health threats.

The Collective Voice for Frontline Health Workers

The Frontline Health Workers Coalition (FHWC) advocates for urgent action to address the world’s most acute gaps in access to health workers. FHWC is an alliance of public and private United States-based organizations advocating for greater and more strategic investment in frontline health workers in low- and middle-income countries as a cost-effective way to save lives and foster a healthier, safer, and more prosperous world. We serve as both a technical support and watchdog function to the United States government and multilateral institutions, as well as a partner to advocates worldwide collectively striving to ensure every community has access to essential health services from trained and supported health workers.
