Assessing Trauma in Sierra Leone

This report is the product of close cooperation and hard work by a multinational team motivated to bear witness to the anguish suffered by the Sierra Leone population.

Warm thanks to MSF-Holland's medical coordinator in Freetown, Maureen Mulham, for
skillfully guiding the survey process. Lo van Beers was instrumental during the data entry process. Special thanks go to the group of Sierra Leonian interviewers and their respondents for the difficult and often painful work of asking and answering the survey questions. For reasons of security, the names of the interviewers/interviewees cannot be given.
