Productivity of health workers
The aims of the project are 1) to measure within country variations in health worker productivity in Ghana, Zambia, Rwanda, and Tanzania. and 2) to contribute to the methodology of measuring health worker performance, in particular in settings where demand for health services is limited.
There is a massive shortage of health workers in Africa south of Sahara. It is therefore of great importance to utilise the existing workforce as efficiently as possible in serving people's needs. By identifying areas with high health worker productivity, good practices may be transferred to places with low productivity. Moreover, large variations in health worker productivity may be a reason for reallocating health workers from low-producitve to high-productive areas.
Various methods will be utilised in the study, including Stochastic Frontier Analysis (SFA) and Data Envelope Analysis (DEA).
