Jhpiego's Training Information Monitoring System was used to track the working status of trained providers. Using PEPFAR funding,Ethiopian service providers were trained in HIV-related topics, from 2005 until December 2007. To track the reasons for high attrition rates amongst these health workers, data forms were developed to capture information on providers' working status and given to eight partners who collected data during routine site visits.Individual's working status were noted: if not working at the facility, date of and reason for leaving; and source of information. Of the providers not at the facility, the two largest groups were those who had left for further study (27.6%) and those who had gone to another public facility (17.6%). Of all physicians trained,49.2% had left the facility.
