To address the need to attract doctors, and more aspiring doctors to serve in the government sector, a good key motivator is good compensation. With the current salary rate given to an entry level Medical Officer, more and more medical professionals choose to work outside of public health and, unfortunately outside of the country, where pay is significantly higher.

Compared to other countries especially in Southeast Asia government physicians are paid far less from our asian counterparts.
