Publication: Guinea-Bissau: Health Labor Market Analysis
This report provides a comprehensive diagnostic of the labor market for health workers in Guinea-Bissau. It provides the evidence base for a new strategic plan for health workforce development. The report analyzes three dimensions: (i) workers’ demographics, motivations, aspirations and satisfaction; (ii) hours worked and its distribution across different activities; and (iii) compensation, household income and consumption. Beyond this, it also calculates wage and labor supply equations. The analysis accounts for both, health professionals (doctors, nurses, midwifes, technicians) and community health workers, who are treated as volunteers in the Bissau-Guinean health system.
