Human resources development is an important part of ReBUILDing the health sector post-conflict but has received relatively little attention in the literature and may be overlooked by decision-makers and donors. No study to date has focused on how the decisions made, or not made, in the post-conflict period can affect the longer term pattern of attraction, retention, distribution and performance of health workers, and thus ultimately the performance of the sector.

The work of the ReBUILD Consortium in this field includes a large body of research on health worker incentives, being carried out across all four partner countries, and research on health worker deployment systems in two partner countries.

Further work on HRH is being done in Sierra Leone on the effects on the recent Ebola outbreak on health workers and the health system, and also by one of ReBUILD’s Affiliate research partners on Health Workers’ Remuneration, Incentives and Accountability in Sierra Leone. And another Affiliate research partner’s work on health systems resilience in Côte d’Ivoire and northern Nigeria is producing important findings relating to human resources for health.
