Abstract

This policy brief aims to understand whether or how session work in hospitals could be expanded to help achieve universal health coverage. It explores how common session work is, what it implies, and why it is attractive to some at present; how willing other private specialists might be to work in the public sector in future; and how session work might be incentivised for expansion.

Keywords: public health, human resource, doctors
