USAID’s Advancing Partners & Communities end of project was designed to strengthen the health system post-Ebola by upgrading community health facilities, including ensuring water and power are available, training healthcare workers, providing basic equipment and supporting national policies.

Today, revitalized health services are available in 305 peripheral health units that serve more than 2 million Sierra Leoneans in five districts. The project improved water and sanitation, installed solar power systems, and trained more than 900 health professionals on reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child health—as well as infection prevention and control practices to help prevent the next infectious disease outbreak.
