Satisfaction, Motivation, and Intent to Stay among Ugandan Physicians: A Survey from 18 National Hospitals

The International Journal of Health Planning and Management published a study conducted by the Capacity Project, the predecessor to CapacityPlus. “Satisfaction, motivation, and intent to stay among Ugandan physicians: a survey from 18 national hospitals” found that nearly half of the doctors were so dissatisfied that they would consider leaving the health sector or the country. The report concludes that policy-makers should consider interventions to remedy the quality of management, availability of equipment and supplies, facility infrastructure, workload, and professional development, which are reported as major sources of dissatisfaction.
