Ardha Isma Maziyah

Abstract

The problem of quantity and distribution of health personnel is a health policy problem that is often faced in remote areas. Health development is an effort to fulfill the basic rights of the people, namely the right to access health services. One of them with the distribution of health workers evenly in certain locations. Indonesia is one of 57 countries experiencing World Health Human Resources crisis in the world. Health crisis is increasingly felt in remote areas resulting in the development of Indonesian dwarfs as a whole. This condition is exacerbated by the low retention of health workers in the region. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the inequality of distribution of health workers in remote areas. This research uses qualitative design with descriptive analysis approach. The imbalance of health personnel is caused by the demand and supply that do not go hand in hand. Therefore, to improve the distribution of health workers in remote areas, there needs to be policy support from the government, including compulsory work with adequate infrastructure support. Incentives both financial and non-financial should also be considered as an effort to improve access to health workers in remote areas.
