Helping to plan for, find and keep the workforce needed to deliver health for all.
AHP is a social profit organisation that works with the South African government and civil society organisations to find solutions to Human Resources for Health challenges.
AHP visited Hlabisa Hospital in rural South Africa where four doctors shared their reasons for working in a rural hospital.
The generalist nature of the medical services required in rural hospitals provides doctors with excellent exposure to the full range of primary medical disciplines, including obstetrics and gynaecology, anaesthetics, surgery, and internal medicine.
AHP runs a Retention Programme in nine districts and one sub-district in seven provinces to address some of the underlying causes of the high attrition rates in South Africa’s rural healthcare facilities.
