    Organization: Welbodi Partnership
    Country: Sierra Leone
    Closing date: 31 May 2017

    Welbodi Partnership is a UK-registered charitable organisation based in Freetown, Sierra Leone. We have been working since 2008 to improve the quality of health care women and children receive. We believe that increased access to quality healthcare will improve the health of women and children in Sierra Leone. We are embedded in health facilities where we work with local partners to catalyze improvements in care delivery. We undertake coordinated capacity-building with stakeholders on multiple levels, from policy and leadership to management and clinical training. We also engage with community beneficiaries to ensure that women and children are empowered to seek care appropriately and hold the health system accountable for improved outcomes.

    Our vision is that all women and children in Sierra Leone will have access to effective essential healthcare services characterized by respect and dignity for all, including patients, communities and staff.

    Our mission is to build the capacity of the health system in Sierra Leone to reduce the number of women and children who are sick, suffer, or die unnecessarily.

    Our guiding principles

    1. Deliver Lasting Results: Our overall aim is to reduce the number of women and children who are sick, suffer, or die unnecessarily in Sierra Leone. To achieve this, we build the capacity of the institutions, organisations and people that make up the public health system. However, we ultimately hold ourselves accountable for delivering lasting results for women and children, their families and communities, throughout Sierra Leone.

    2. Working in Partnership: Our work is conceived, designed, led and implemented in partnership with those most affected by the barriers to health in Sierra Leone—patients, families, providers, and policy makers. We are embedded in the facilities and communities with which we work, and we commit ourselves to listening to our partners, valuing their expertise, and supporting their visions for change.

    3. Health Systems Approach: Our approach means that we consider the health system as a whole, attending to how different elements interact and overlap. Rather than pushing individual “solutions” in isolation, we intervene at multiple points simultaneously, and we watch closely for unintended consequences. We identify and work collaboratively with agents of change in different parts of the health system and the community.

    4. Valuing People: We support our partners and members of our team to develop as individuals and leaders. We treat our partners and team with respect and compassion, and believe that this helps ensure the same treatment is extended to patients and their families.

    5. Reflective Practice: The problems we face are complex and difficult to solve, and we do not presume to have all the answers. We strive to acknowledge and learn from our mistakes and to instil a culture of learning among our team and partners. We regularly question the assumptions underlying our work, evaluate the efficacy of our approach, and adapt accordingly.
