They come for different reasons - to make a difference, to experience something new, to put their training into real and challenge practice - but they all seem to find themselves challenged and ultimately charmed by the crazy, sometimes heart-wrenching, but always fulfilling life of a health worker in rural Africa.
Realities are changing at many of South Africa's public and rural hospitals, and the common actor is always the arrival of good people. Raising a hospital from a place of disease and desperation to a functional facility where people come to find treatment and health is without exception dependent on a team of good staff.
Despite its challenges, many people find working in rural and public health to be highly rewarding. The medical experience gained is both diverse and challenging, and one has the opportunity to feel truly appreciated in one's work, making a real difference in people's lives. Last but not least is the calmer, safer lifestyle, in serene and beautiful settings.
Health Minister, Dr Aaron Motsoaledi, explained that: “South Africa is facing a quadruple burden of diseases that will only be addressed if we have adequate human resources for all our programmes and interventions”. This groundbreaking revitalisation plan was largely driven by the “broader vision of improving health outcomes and attaining the millennium development goals (MDGs)”
