  • Description
    "One important step in determining which package of rural attraction and retention strategies will be most effective in Uganda is to estimate which strategies health workers themselves most prefer. To this end, in August 2010, the MOH, in partnership with CapacityPlus, USAID's global health workforce project, conducted a discrete choice experiment (DCE) survey among current students in health training programs as well as health workers practicing in rural districts to investigate preferences for potential attraction and retention strategies for postings in the country's rural areas. The results of this survey constitute an important input to the policymaking process related to the identification, costing, and selection of possible retention interventions for implementation."
