Despite its potential importance for growth and development, only a handful papers either empirical or theoretical have directly addressed the determinants of and returns to firm-level on-the-job training in developing countries. Yet many strands of research point to training as an important source of human capital accumulation in these economies. This monograph aims to describe in a comprehensive way the determinants of, as well as the returns to, training for a set of African workers and firms operating in five different countries. It looks at many of the standard explanations offered in the training and labor literature developed with regard to the developed world, while also asking several questions very specific to the African experience, in particular the HIV/AIDS epidemic that emerges during the 1990s.
