  • 9. Impact of the Financial and Non-Financial Incentives in the Zambia Health Workers Retention Scheme (ZHWRS) on the Recipients Presented by: Clément M. Habiyakare, MPH Global Health Student, SFU / Email: Site Preceptor: Dr. Fastone M. Goma, Human Resources for Health Research to Action Group Team Leader, ZAMFOHR Senior Supervisor: Dr. Craig R. Janes, Professor, SFU Acknowledgements: Derrick Hamavhwa, Information Manager at ZAMFOHR; and Dr. Fastone M. Goma, HRH-RAG Team Leader at ZAMFOHR. Thanks goes also to the health workers in Chibombo and Gwembe districts that candidly agreed to share their views and experiences on the retention scheme. In 2003, the MOH introduced an innovative strategy to recruit and retain doctors in rural and remote areas, commonly known as the Zambia Health Workers Retention Scheme1. Then, the scheme was expanded to include other health workers in 2007. The scale-up of the scheme followed the recommendations of the Human Resources for Health Strategic Plan 2006-20102. However, no thorough evaluation has been carried out since the 2005 Mid-Term Review which concluded that the scheme as is had increased the number of Zambian health workers in rural areas 3. The purpose of this qualitative study was to go beyond the noticeable increased staffing levels in rural areas as an indicator of the scheme’s success, but to examine the impact of each individual incentive. Introduction  Describe the financial and non-financial incentives present in the ZHWRS.  Evaluate the impact of the financial and non-financial incentives on the recipients of such a scheme. Objectives  Convenience sampling of 2 rural health districts, including Chibombo (Central province) and Gwembe (Southern province).  2 key informant interviews with policy-makers for contextual information  7 face-to-face, in-depth, individual semi-structured interviews with health workers currently enrolled on the scheme Methodology Future direction 1 MOH Zambia.

March 2005. Mid Term Review: Zambia Health Workers Retention Scheme (ZHWRS) 2003-2004. Chapel Hill: HRH Global Resource Center. DiscussionEmerging themes  Health workers generally refer to professional conscience as motivating factors that initially attracted them to work in a rural setting.  It is quite possible that some would have worked in a rural area for the length of a contract without any financial incentive.  Health workers are satisfied with the ZHWRS monthly allowance and other benefits (in comparison to other government entitlements).  The case of the ZHWRS illustrates the relevance of non-financial incentives on their recruitment and retention.  Health worker motivation in rural areas Treatment by the management, not salary and benefits, was identified by the health workers as a major factor of recruitment to a rural setting. Adequacy of the financial incentives Health workers reported that the monthly salary top-up was relatively more important than other government allowances in terms of amount, but inflation issues remained a concern.  Information flow about the scheme Health workers demonstrated limited knowledge on their scheme entitlements, apart the monthly salary top-up. Health worker District Medical Office Provincial Medical Office Ministry of Health ZHWRS Other government allowances Base salary Adequacy of the non-financial incentives Health workers reported that lack of proper infrastructure contributed to social isolation and remoteness of a facility, but they were content with access to free health care services.

Preceptors: Jennifer Senior Supervis The Paediatric Child and Youth Council (PCY) at Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) was established in the interest of creating a more integrated approach to the delivery of services for children and youth within the regional health authority and provide the leadership required to coordinate the planning and delivery of services and regional policies, with the goal of optimizing health care across the continuum of care,. One of the priority areas of the PCY Council is mental health, including eating disorders. A combination of treatment and prevention is crucial to tackling the increasingly salient issue of eating disorders among children and youth in Canada. Although eating disorders affect a small percentage of the population, they have significant impacts on child and youth mental health services, specifically hospitalization. The province of British Columbia has the highest Canadian hospitalization rate for women with eating disorders at 15.9 per 100,000. Each year, BC spends about $3.4 million on hospital- based care for eating disorders. Furthermore, a recent BC analysis shows that it may be spending up to 30 times as much, or $101.7 million, on long-term disability payments for people with anorexia. Adolescents of both sexes between the ages of 10 and 19 years have the highest rate of hospitalization for eating disorders. eating.jpg RATIONALE STRAT OBJECTIVES
