Policies to attract and retain health workers in Northern Uganda during and after conflict: findings of key informant interviews
Authors: Justine Namakula & Sophie Witter, July 2014
The dynamics of the health workforce in fragmented post-conflict situations is inadequately understood. However, this information is key to restoring a well coordinated and functioning health system. The post conflict period may sometimes provide a window for policy reforms to address long-standing human resources for health (HRH) challenges. This study aimed to understand the evolution of government and donor policies supporting health workers during and after the conflict in Northern Uganda, and to derive recommendations on how to improve their effectiveness and sustainability. This report covers one component of a wider ReBUILD research project, which also included in-depth interviews with health workers, document review and stakeholder mapping.
