In response to the vast healthcare needs of the country, attempts have been made to extend sustainable rural health services with a small number of CHW programs formed through international and community partnerships. The purpose of the current mixed methods research was to evaluate the efficacy, sustainability, and cultural compatibility of an annual volunteer-led training program for CHWs in rural southeast Haiti.
The Chinese government, based on the 1999 Law on Physicians, started implementing the Rural Doctor Practice Regulation in 2004 to increase the percentage of certified physicians among village doctors.

This study examined these rural doctors’ perceptions of whether that training helps them pass the exam and whether it improves their skills.
 The Friends of Mosvold Scholarship Scheme in northern KwaZulu-Natal is a locally based scholarship scheme that offers the local community a chance to develop its own human resources for health care. This concept is being extended to the Limpopo and North-West provinces through the Wits Initiative for Rural Health Education. The scheme provides a model for human resource development at a district level that could be usefully adopted by any tier of government.
