Mobility of health professionals impacts the health systems of receiving, transit, and sending countries. EU Member States are increasingly affected by these developments, and there is, therefore, urgent need to develop European policies to adequately address these issues. The research project Mobility of Health Professionals (MoHProf) is a European Union funded project that aims to contribute to an improved knowledge base and to facilitate European policy on human resource planning.
