We know that health systems in Africa do not meet their full potential and part of the reason is a lack of health care workers and other health-related staff. The health worker deficit has become the focus of international campaigns and spawned hashtags that abound on social media. It is true that more needs to be done to train and retain staff on the continent. But we also need to focus on the workforce that dutifully tends to the health of communities – often in sub-optimal conditions with limited support. Are there adapted, cost-effective and sustainable ways that researchers can support improvements in health worker performance within the health system through strengthening management? This is the question that PERFORM researchers in Ghana, Tanzania and Uganda set out to explore.
