The article highlights the global health forum in Uganda to address the lack of medical workers in developing countries. The forum also aims to lobby developed countries, who benefit from the migration of workers from developing countries, to play a role in addressing the problem. A series of resolutions were produced by the 1500 delegates that primarily call on governments to lead coordination efforts and encourage them to explore public-private partnerships. In addition, the resolutions have encouraged all partners to focus on improving and expanding training programs in the hardest hit countries. Moreover, Uganda's Health Minister Dr. Stephen Mallinga has stated that the lack of workers is one of the biggest challenges that the country is facing to meet its development goals.
