Attracting and retaining health workers in rural areas in Kenya: Investigating nurses views, career choices and potential policy interventions

Abstract

This research aimed to address known evidence gaps to better understand the determinants that influence health workers’ choices to help overcome rural-urban recruitment and retention disparities in Kenya. This policy brief provides findings from the baseline for this research as well as from a follow-up cohort of 250 nurses post qualification. It is hoped that this will help the Kenyan government to better understand the impact current and future policy interventions might have on employment preferences and their influence on recruitment and retention of nurses in rural areas of Kenya.
