MSF Hospital in Kabala, Sierra Leone

Sierra Leone

In years since the end of the 2014-2016 Ebola epidemic, during which many medical staff died, Sierra Leone is now struggling to rebuild its shattered health system.

Before the epidemic, Sierra Leone had some of the worst health indicators in the world, especially for maternal and child mortality.

In Tonkolili district, we support the paediatric ward, maternity and neonatal services and the blood transfusion laboratory at Magburaka district hospital, and also assist Magburaka mother and child health post with staff and supplies. We also provide emergency obstetric care in a community health centre in Yoni Chiefdom (Hinistas).

In 2020, MSF teams responded to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic in Sierra Leone.
