Introduction: ReBUILD’s research on human resources for health in post-conflict Sierra Leone

Human resources development, a critically important part of health systems rebuilding after conflict or crisis, has received relatively little attention in the literature and there has been consequently little to inform decision-makers and donors. ReBUILD’s overall work on human resources for health (HRH) therefore 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.

ReBUILD has been working in Sierra Leone since 2011, with research primarily focusing on health worker incentives and on health financing. The large body of work on health worker incentives in Sierra Leone has been complemented by additional work looking at the effects on the 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.

More recently, ReBUILD’s work in Sierra Leone has been focusing on close-to-community health workers, performance-based financing, and household demographics and healthcare access after conflict.

Running through all ReBUILD’s research has been a focus on gender and equity, and outputs from much of the specific work on gender has relevance for human resources.

The list below is complete as of April 2018. Further information and resources are available via the Resources page of the ReBUILD website, and specific pre-sorted resources from ReBUILD’s work on human resources for health in Sierra Leone can be found here.
