Recruitment/Retention to Improve Rural Service

This document summarizes the evidence from key review articles on interventions to improve recruitment and retention of health workers in rural areas. There is no strong evidence to support any of the interventions tested, but selection of medical students with parents in the rural area is somewhat effective in improving rural retention. Most studies found that simple interventions are introduced to attract/retain staff when, in fact, rural service incentives are complex.
