Abstract: We conducted a cross-sectional survey among 74 community health workers in rural health houses to investigate overall job satisfaction and satisfaction with 8 aspects of the job [work itself, co-workers, management, workload, promotion, organizational structure, working conditions, and payment and benefits]. Data were collected by a self-administered questionnaire based on the Job Descriptive Index and the Employee Satisfaction Inventory. Overall job satisfaction of respondents was moderate. They were satisfied with the work itself and co-workers, but very dissatisfied with all other aspects, especially payments and benefits. Providing opportunities for promotion and improving payments and work conditions would increase overall job satisfaction and promote quality of care
