This article by our partners at A Healthier We (AHW) looks at the shrinking rural health workforce, a problem that will not go away any time soon. It argues that communities must tackle the situation head-on and rethink issues such as: recruitment, training, and skill development for health workers at all levels; payment structures; licensing standards and work life balance.
