Freetown, Nov. 11, 2015 (MOHS) – The Ministry of Health and Sanitation Directorate of Human Resource for Health will be organizing a one day orientation workshop on Human Resource Information System come Thursday November 12, 2015 at the Civil Service Training College in Freetown.
Organized with support from the World Health Organization (WHO), the event is part of the Ministry’s six to nine months Recovery Plan that seeks to update information on the health workforce numerical strength, its distribution and skills capacity building within the country.
The Human Resource Information System (HRIS) would serve as an effective tool for obtaining accurate and updated information that would assist the Ministry’s top management team and the Human Resource Directorate Leadership with appropriate relevant data that would help the Ministry and stakeholders in ensuring its successful implementation.
In anticipation of the successful implementation of the HRIS, it is expected that all human resources activities within the Ministry in all districts across the country will capture the payroll and attendance systems, coordinate and align efforts in the health sector that would be beneficial to governance and management record operations.
The Guest of Honour and Chairman for the occasion is Secretary to the Cabinet and Head of the Civil Service, Dr. Ernest Surur. Statements are also expected to be delivered by the Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Brima Kargbo, the WHO Country Representative, Dr. Anders Nordstrom and the Administrative Head and Permanent Secretary of the Health and Sanitation Ministry, Mr. David Banya.
