Currently, nearly 15,000 CHWs are providing high-impact, life-saving health and nutrition services to community members in Sierra Leone. In the wake of the Ebola crisis, Sierra Leone recognizes that a strong and organized CHW system is key not only to keeping community members healthy, but also to quelling and preventing future epidemics.
AMP Health began working in Sierra Leone in 2016 in order to support the rollout of the country's updated CHW strategy, increase the performance of its community health system, and increase investments in community health, particularly supporting the integration and implementation of financing mechanisms.
