Former Uganda Country Director
Uganda has only one doctor, nurse, or midwife for every 714 people—a critical health workforce shortage. Only 60% of public-sector positions are currently filled, and most are concentrated in the cities. Performance problems, low retention, lack of skills, poor motivation, and absenteeism abound within the health workforce.
Through this $23 million project, IntraHealth and Uganda's Ministry of Health are working together to bring the health sector's staffing levels up from 69% to 75% nationwide.
