International Non-Governmental Organization, the International Rescue Committee (IRC) in Kenema, concluded a day-long stakeholders meeting at the Bo District Council Hall at Sewa Road in Bo.
The meeting, was on the topic, Reporting on the Community Monitoring with Scorecard and Non-Financial Awards Competition Projects aimed at improving the health service delivery.
In his opening remarks, the Health Student Officer of the District Health Management Team, Mohamed Massaquoi, who chaired the program, reminded attendees that the IRC has been playing pivotal role in the implementation of the Free Health Care Service, noting that although the IRC has been working in Kenema, Kailahun and Kono, the organization only started working in Bo last year starting with the Non-Financial Awards project.
Mr. Massaquoi reiterated that the meeting was called to share experiences on the successes and lapses of the project, noting that many projects in Sierra Leone have failed but that IRC projects do not fail. He called on the community people consider IRC for the implementation of any project in their communities.
Giving an overview of the project, the IRC Program Manager, Edward Chaka, explained that the project deals with high maternal and infant mortality attitude of nurses including nurse absenteeism and several other health issues.
