  • Description
    [Excerpt from authors] Zimbabwe, like many other countries in the region, is badly affected by a shortage of health workers. Many of the health indicator improvements achieved during the first ten years of independence are on the decline and the main reason for this is shortage of skilled and experienced health workers at a time when demand for services is increasing due to a growing population and the challenges posed by HIV/AIDS. The results summarized in this paper show the different dimensions of equity impacted by the distribution of public sector health workers in Zimbabwe.
