Abstract

This policy brief shows how the rapid scale-up of HIV / AIDS services has affected human resources for health in Zambia. It focuses on health worker numbers and trends, workloads, retention and training. It is based on research conducted in three districts in Zambia: Lusaka and Kabwe (urban districts) and Mumbwa (rural district). The overall study explored the effects of three GHIs on the Zambian health system: the Global Fund to fight AIDS, TB and Malaria, the World Bank's Multi-country AIDS Program (MAP) and the United States President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).
