Figure 1

Health care workers’ rating of compensation factors in three regions. Percent of respondents in Nairobi (n = 168), Machakos (n = 133) and Turkana (n = 98) who rated select compensation factors as very important. Please note: (1) ‘recognition’ here refers to ‘recognition and awards scheme’; (2) ‘motivation’ means ‘measure of motivation instituted by the organization’; (3) ‘terminal benefits’ refer to payments made to the worker as they finally leave the organization, for example on retirement. Terminal benefits include payment of pension; (4) Health care for family in the strictest sense refers to inclusion of dependants in the medical cover and insurance for family members.
