A cross-sectional survey was conducted in Pakistan between September and December 2009. The purpose of the survey was to collect data on the number and distribution of health care workers; to assess the job satisfaction and work environment and to gather information about HRH management and policy.

The survey result shows that the public sector is inadequately staffed; work environment needs improvement to enhance job satisfaction and to motivate the workforce. Private sector was found to have better work environment and better equipped than the public sector. Results showed varying levels of development and implementation of HRH polices in practice.
