We Focus On

PSI Sierra Leone works with the Ministry of Health and Sanitation’s National Malaria Control Program to identify roadblocks to providing quality malaria service delivery to clients. It works to plan and implement evidence-based interventions to reach Sierra Leone’s goal of reducing the national malaria burden by 40% by 2020.

With the goal of reducing malaria morbidity and mortality, PSI Sierra Leone supports the National Malaria Control Program in strengthening malaria case management and malaria in pregnancy at the community and public facility levels, strengthening of the national laboratory diagnostics capacity and building capacity in the collection and use of data for decision-making through quarterly outreach training and supportive supervision.
