Chapter 11 discusses the greatest shortage in Africa—skilled health workers. It provides the background in terms of numbers, distribution, and migration of health workers, and goes on to describe some of the imaginative solutions that health leaders in Africa and elsewhere have developed to tackle these shortages. It sets the scene for the following chapters in which African health leaders describe how they have dealt with these issues, whilst developing services and professional education in tandem. It concludes with a short chapter on Indigenous Knowledge Systems.
