The Alliance is a non-profit organization governed by a multi-stakeholder Board of Directors with representation from unions, employers, recruiters, licensure bodies, and professional associations including migrant groups.
Our purpose is to ensure that international recruitment is conducted in a fair and transparent manner. Our two strategic programs are:
Certification: We certify recruiters and employers who adhere to the Voluntary Code of Ethical Conduct for the Recruitment of Foreign-Educated Health Professionals to the United States (Code) and allow us to monitor their practices through confidential surveys of the individuals they recruit.
- Educational Outreach: We provide information directly to migrants on their rights and responsibilities and encourage them to review the performance of recruiters.
