The team includes professional recruiters, HR specialists, doctors, nurses, professors, researchers, administrators, marketers and business professionals.
Staffing: Recruitment and registration of local and international health workers and managers to work in permanent or volunteer posts in government and NGO facilities. Recruitment is supported by creative award-winning marketing campaigns involving local and international advertising, conference attendance and media promotions, as well as tapping a growing social network through online portals, alumni and a massive health worker and manager database.
Workforce Support: Orientation and ongoing support for public sector health workers, focusing on rural areas. Orientation includes clinical, cultural and logistical support. Health worker support is aligned with government policies and NGO programme commitments, and focuses on improving retention through continued professional development, troubleshooting critical retention issues, and working to fix the systems that are creating recurring issues that impact on retention.
Consulting and Advocacy: Helping governments, regulatory bodies and civil society institutions to make themselves more competitive in attracting scarce and mobile health worker and manager resources.This includes understanding the drivers of career choice, translating policy into practice and providing on-the-ground resources to help identify and unblock bottlenecks.
