  • Sources, determinants and utilization of health workers’ revenues: evidence from Sierra Leone 
    Resource Type: Peer Reviewed Articles
    Year: 2016
    Description: This paper investigates the entire set of formal and informal payments available to health workers (HWs) in Sierra Leone, through combined quantitative and qualitative approaches. The paper shows the fragmented nature of remuneration, and heterogeneity in the importance of different income sources. It describes the ways HWs are ‘managing’ in order to ensure their livelihoods and those of their families. The findings have important policy implications for financial incentive strategies.
