The objectives were twofold: to inform the development and monitoring of human resources for health (HRH) policy within the ...
sometimes called "village health workers" are members of a community who are chosen by community members to provide basic health and medical care to their community.

Over the last two decades, concern has been expressed about the readiness of the public health workforce to adequately address the scientific, technological, social, political and economic challenges facing the field.

A recent evaluation sought to address the role of the 10 essential public health ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Countries Without Doctors?
Forget about all the members of Congress who are supposedly about to suffer from "Obamacare" blowback in the mid-term elections. Forget about the deficit, the bureaucracy, and any other critiques you might have heard about President Barack Obama's health-care reform passed earlier this year. There's a far bigger consequence looming abroad: U.S. health-care reform will exact an excruciating cost on the developing world. Here's why: Tens of thousands of doctors are about to leave their home countries -- where they are often desperately needed -- to come to the United States to meet America's growing demand. ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

The problem is that the two positions don't really offer the same pay. The standard pay for working retail is slightly over minimum wage. Qualified party directors and teachers are paid much more.   Is there a way to structure the pay for this position so that an hourly rate is offered and a ...
