Partnerships Critical For Delivering Digital Payments To HCWs In Emergency Response Situations

Devex: The importance of partnerships in humanitarian response
Momodu L. Kargbo, Sierra Leone’s minister of finance and economic development

“…Building partnerships with the private sector and development organizations is key for us to succeed [in delivering digital payments to health care workers (HCWs) in emergency response situations]. … It is critical to start building resilient response measures now; therefore, we must put in place the policy frameworks, infrastructure, and public education initiatives necessary for a digital payments solution. By working collaboratively and proactively, digital payments can help build resilience in the face of challenges such as those we encountered in the Ebola crisis, can contribute to greater financial inclusion of citizens, and can drive economic opportunities throughout the country in the aftermath” (5/25).
