What should be done to stop health workers’ absenteeism in your health facility?(Deadline:28th/February/2018)

Full-time availability of health workers at a health facility is essential, that is why they work in shifts for provision of quality health services.

Health facility in-charges are supposed to develop and display a list of health workers scheduled to be on duty and off-duty on the health facility notice board for the benefit of patients who come for treatment. This mandatory practice is however not followed in some health facilities and many citizens especially those who seek for health services in government health facilities have on many occasions complained about health worker’s absenteeism.
