New Country Case Studies on Positive Practice Environments in Zambia and Uganda

Partners of the Positive Practice Environments Campaign have released two country case studies in Zambia and Uganda. The studies explore the current key issues facing the health workforce in those countries with particular attention to practice environments, recruitment and retention of the health workforce. The case studies outline the country specific approaches being employed to address the current challenges, in addition to making recommendations to inform the future strategic direction.

These case studies provide the foundations and evidence to inform and develop the Positive Practice Environments Campaign within Uganda and Zambia. They also contribute to WHO's work related to “Increasing access to the health workforce in remote and rural areas through improved retention”.

The PPE Campaign was initiated with financial support from the Alliance by the International Council of Nurses, The International Pharmaceutical Federation, the World Dental Federation, The World Medical Association, the International Hospital Federation and the World Confederation for Physical Therapy. It aims to improve work environments, staff recruitment and retention and quality of health services through the development of positive practice environments.
