    Funded under the Annual Action Programme 2010 for Cooperation with Third Countries in the Areas of Migration and Asylum, the project is aligned well with the EU Development cooperation policy for Moldova. Since independence about 40% of health workforce quitted the job and migrated to other economic sectors or abroad. The existing education system could replenish these losses, but up to 1/3 of graduates in some cases seem not to be interested to start the professional career in the health system, this leading to considerable brain waste and brain drain. The project will help consolidate the health personnel management system and mainstream the migration flows through circular mobility mechanisms. The main project partner is the Ministry of Health (MoH) with affiliated structures dealing with human resource for health (HRH) management and a large number of stakeholders, varying from line ministries to academic institutions and civil society organisations. All project stakeholders are highly interested in the project outcomes and fully support it.
