This report analysed causes, potential strategies, including financial and non-financial incentives, and resource implications of addressing the problem of maldistribution of health workers in Niger.

Recommendations include strategies to implementing a bonding scheme linked to access to specialisation, the provision of housing facilities for health workers, improvement in working conditions in peripheral health facilities, develop new strategies to improve access to quality education for the children of health workers, the development of "competency pools" to facilitate retention and service provision, and increasing hardship allowances for posting in remote and rural areas.
