Human resources development is a crucially important part of health systems strengthening post-conflict, but has previously received relatively little attention in the literature (read Roome et al's review).
ReBUILD' research on human resources for health has looked at 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 specific research of the ReBUILD Consortium in this field includes:
- Health workers’ remuneration, incentives and accountability in Sierra Leone - additional research by one of ReBUILD's affiliate research partners
- Research to understand the effects of the recent Ebola outbreak on health workers and the health system in Sierra Leone.
Using community health workers in fragile and conflict affected settings - an extension research project.
Research to understand human resources for health recruitment and deployment in post-conflict settings - an extension research project.
Another of ReBUILD's affiliate research projects on health systems resilience in Côte d’Ivoire and northern Nigeria has produced important findings relating to human resources for health.
