Throughout Africa, the human resources crisis in the public health system has become one of the biggest challenges in attaining the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). In the face of difficult working environments and inadequate support, health workers are often unprepared and unable to meet the high demands placed on them; they lose motivation, become disengaged, or vacate their posts altogether. This report describes pioneering work in Niger by the USAID Health Care Improvement Project (HCI) to apply quality improvement methods to strengthen human resources management and performance at the facility- and district-management level to improve maternal care in the Tahoua Region.

Published in 2011 under the USAID Health Care Improvement Project (HCI) project.
