A new global network for addressing critical social service workforce issues has formed, called the Global Social Service Workforce Alliance (" href="https://twitter.com/SSWAlliance">). Comprised of organizations and individuals, the SSWAlliance: "recognizes the key challenges facing this workforce and aims to promote the knowledge and evidence, resources and tools and political will and action needed to address them, especially within low to middle income countries."  

Amy Bess, coordinator, introduced the SSWAlliance via webinars on June 6 and 7, 2013.

Ummuro Adano, a steering committee member of the SSWAlliance, and a principal technical advisor at MSH, said:

“The social service workforce is critical for creating protective environments for healthy development and well-being and tackling poverty; promoting social justice; ensuring protection from violence, abuse, exploitation and neglect; and providing needed services to care for and support those who need it most."
