Much remains to be done. This event brings together educators, thought leaders, policymakers, and funders to discuss why transformative health workforce education and evaluation of the workforce data on production, employment, and retention are vital to universal health coverage (UHC). Participants will discuss key issues and emerging evidence pertinent to the return-on-investments of socially accountable health workforce education and identify next steps to mobilize action.
