|EQUINET: Network for Equality in Health in Southern Africa, 2007
"This paper was commissioned by the Regional Network for Equity in Health in east and southern Africa (EQUINET) in co-operation with the East, Central and Southern African Health Community (ECSA-HC) to inform a programme of work on 'valuing health workers' so that they are retained within the health systems. The paper reviewed evidence from published and grey (English language) literature on the use of nonfinancial incentives for health worker retention in sixteen countries in east and southern Africa (ESA): Angola, Botswana, DRC, Kenya, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. There is a growing body of evidence on health worker issues in ESA countries, but few studies on the use of incentives for retention, especially in under-served areas."
