Staffing the public health sector in Sierra Leone, 2005-11: findings from routine data analysis

This report forms part of a multi-country study on the evolution of health worker incentives in post-conflict setting

Abstract

This report forms part of a multi-country ReBUILD study on the evolution of health worker incentives in post-conflict settings. It is based on the analysis of routine human resources data from Sierra Leone from 2005 to 2011. As the data includes the period of the introduction of the Free Health Care Initiative in Sierra Leone, it allows us to draw some preliminary conclusions about its apparent effects on staffing levels, number of posts filled, attendance, attrition, density to population changes and health worker outputs. The validity of these conclusions is dependent on the completeness and robustness of the secondary data.

This research is supported by the Department for International Development’s ReBUILD Programme which is led by Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine
