Abstract

The descriptive method was used in this study. A total of 247 health workers were selected as respondents using purposive sampling, where 116 health workers came from Rural Health Unit 1 and 131 health workers came from Rural Health Unit 2. A self-made questionnaire served as the instrument. Data was analyzed through frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, t-test and f-test (ANOVA). The study concluded that, 1) Majority of the respondents were 31-40 year old, female, married, unemployed and worked as volunteers, college graduate, worked for more than five (5) years, and earned below P10,000; 2) Most of the problems encountered by health workers occurred in the area of compensation, incentives and benefits; 3) There were no significant differences on the problems encountered by health workers in terms of age, gender, civil status, educational attainment, length of experience and family income while there were significant differences on the problems encountered by health workers in terms of place of assignment, employment status and nature of work.
