Incentives to improve health workers’ retention and motivation: implementation challenges and informal practices at district level
This brief examines the role of District Health Management Teams (DHMTs) and non-governmental organisations
This Policy Brief was prepared in October 2015 and is based on the paper: Bertone MP, Witter S (2015), An exploration of the political economy dynamics shaping health worker incentives in three districts in Sierra Leone. Social Science and Medicine, 141: 56-63
The study looks beyond the design of human resources for health (HRH) policies in the post-conflict period, to analyze the actual implementation of the HRH policies at local level and reflect on the challenges of translating knowledge not only into policy but also into effective practice.
