Public Services International (PSI), in collaboration with ILO's European Union-funded “Decent Work Across Borders” (DWAB) project has produced seven pre-decision, pre-departure, and return migration guides for healthcare workers.

The booklets cover various aspects of the migration process from the Philippines and India to Finland, Germany, Norway and Denmark. Topics covered include the customs of the countries of destination, practical matters such as housing, banking, and taxation, opportunities for professional growth, as well as return and reintegration. The booklets also provide a catalogue of contacts - including emergency numbers, a directory of trade unions, and a list of immigrant networks.
