2017 | Ministry of Health Sierra Leone
Community engagement is a key to optimizing Sierra Leone’s transition from emergency response to recovery, and is an essential component for sustainability. The aim of facility management committees (FMCs) has been to support community engagement in health by improving the quality and community acceptability of services.
The FMC Operational Guidelines define stakeholder roles and responsibilities in promoting FMC functionality and sustainability, and recommend implementation approaches and tools. The intended users of the guidelines are district health management teams (DHMTs) and implementing partners.
