The COVID-19 situation in Sierra Leone, and its impact on health care overall, is ever-evolving. We invite you to stay in the know by listening to these real-time updates, in which Jon Lascher, executive director of Partners In Health-Sierra Leone, speaks with staff about the latest news and efforts to combat COVID-19 and protect the health of Sierra Leone. ---------- Partners In Health (PIH) began working in Sierra Leone in 2014, during the height of history's worst Ebola outbreak. Throughout West Africa, the epidemic destroyed already fragile health systems. PIH has been working to build back and improve health care in Sierra Leone, with a particular focus on Kono, an eastern, rural district that was hard-hit by not only Ebola, but also the country's brutal civil war and decades of impoverishment. Now, alongside the rest of the world, Sierra Leone is faced with another deadly infectious disease outbreak: COVID-19. In partnership with the government of Sierra Leone, PIH is responding to COVID-19 throughout the country, while also maintaining routine medical care and our overall mission to strengthen the health system in Kono. Tenki ya for listening!
