Sierra Leone

ICAP began working in Sierra Leone in 2014, partnering with the Ministry of Health and Sanitation on an assessment of the community care centers established as part of the nation’s Ebola outbreak response. Infection prevention and control continues to be the backbone of ICAP’s work in Sierra Leone, with a focus on building health system resiliency and responsiveness through quality improvement and human resource development. Activities also address HIV, malaria, and tuberculosis (TB).
