Key Policy Issue #2: How to secure political commitment across political cycles, e.g. government change, substitution of ministers?

  • Should the mandate come from the government and from parliament in order to stress the political commitment to reform?
  • How can the various national stakeholders be engaged?
  • Is there a role for international professional associations such as the International Council of Nurses (ICN), Secrétariat International des Infirmières et Infirmiers de l'Espace Francophone (SIDIIEF), World Medical Association (WMA), World Federation for Medical Education (WFME), International Confederation of Midwives (ICM), associations of educators, e.g. Conférence Internationale des Doyens des Facultés de Médecine d’Expression Française (CIDMEF)?
  • In the case of lower income countries, what is the role of international technical agencies (e.g. WHO), financial agencies (e.g. World Bank, regional banks, bilateral cooperation agencies), or foundations (e. g. Bill and Melinda Gates, Rockefeller, W.K. Kellogg), and how can their support be mobilized?
