Introduction and objectives
This document presents the findings of the document review, which is one of the components of ReBUILD Project 2 focusing on Human Resources for Health (HRH). The objective of this review is to describe the HRH context in Sierra Leone and the HRH policies that have been introduced during the post-conflict period. We aim to understand the reasons for their introduction, how they have been implemented, and what effects any policy changes have had. The document review serves both to guide future work of the ReBUILD team in Sierra Leone. In addition, it will provide clues on how and why certain HRH policies were developed and implemented in the post-conflict environment as well as evaluating their effects on the country’s HRH and health policy objectives.
