Germany’s Triple Win Program for Indian nursing professionals

Germany is facing shortage of skilled nursing staff and experts predict that approximately 500,000 nurses will be required by 2030. In order to facilitate the migration of trained nurses to Germany, Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH and the International Placement Services (ZAV) of the German Federal Employment Agency launched the Triple Win Programme in 2013.


The Triple Win Program focuses on recruiting qualified nurses from other countries, such as from India, Indonesia, and Philippines to migrate to Germany and fill the nursing staff shortages.
