The demand for nurses is growing and has not yet been met in most low and middle-income countries. In India, Kenya, South Africa and Thailand, there has been a rapid proliferation of private training institutions to increase the supply of nurses. RESYST researchers are examining the role of these private institutions, their contribution to the wider health systems, and how governments in these countries have managed the opening of markets to the private sector.

This infographic answers the question can the private sector help overcome nursing shortages? by presenting evidence from India, Thailand, Kenya and South Africa.
