World Health Professions Regulation Conference

WHPRC 2020: 16 May 2020

Health professional regulation faces many challenges in a world characterised by political, social, economic and technological change. Widespread reform of health professional regulation reflects policy initiatives by many governments to ensure sustainable, efficient and effective health service delivery. But what are the implications, and how do we ensure the public’s best interests are met?

Every two years, immediately before the World Health Organization’s World Health Assembly in Geneva, the World Health Professions Regulation Conference provides participants with insights, perspectives and discussion on current challenges in health professional regulation.

Key speakers explore the lessons learned from competence-based approaches to regulation, compare regulatory models and examine ways of promoting best practice in regulatory governance and performance.

Join health professions and regulators from all around the world to learn and share insights, diverse perspectives and emerging solutions to current challenges in health professional regulation!
