Project Highlight

Using photos and infographics, this photo journal outlines key accomplishments under Sierra Leone's Post-Ebola Rebuilding Health Services project.

Report

This report gives an overview of APC's Post-Ebola Rebuilding Health Services project. This two-year project strengthened primary and community health services in Sierra Leone, improving health services for 2 million Sierra Leoneans in areas that were severely affected by the Ebola virus disease outbreak.

Assessment

This baseline facility assessment was conducted to better understand the capacity and infrastructure of the health posts in the five priority districts of Sierra Leone, and to establish a benchmark against which improvements made throughout the course of APC's work can be measured.

Video

Safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene are critical for people’s health and well-being, especially to reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health. Advancing Partners & Communities is excited to launch part one of a two-part compelling, original video series showcasing the work in Sierra Leone to improve primary health care services at health posts and community levels. This first video focuses on the efforts needed to rebuild these services as part of the post-Ebola transition in the country. Handwashing with soap is a critical way to protect communities from the future spread of the Ebola virus and other diseases.
