Western Pacific Regional Network of Health Workforce Regulators

A vital part of the work of the WHO Collaborating for Health Workforce Regulation is the establishment of the Western Pacific Regional Network of Health Workforce Regulators (‘the regional collaborative network’). The regional collaborative network will promote good practice regulation and cross-country learning on health workforce regulation. Currently, our network has members from over 20 countries in the region, seeking to share knowledge on regulation and working together to improve standards.
