At the core of every health system are the health workers who care for patients, provide essential services, and translate health knowledge into action. This study takes into account account organizational conditions that influence health worker motivation and nonfinancial incentives to examine the role that faith plays in motivating and retaining existing health workers in Uganda.
This study examines the differences between morale and satisfaction, performance support factors, intrinsic motivation, faith and religion and compensation and retention of health workers in public (Government of Uganda) and private not-for-profit (PNFP) sectors in Uganda.Download Now
