2019 was an epic year for UNFPA in Sierra Leone as this annual report, ‘Accelerating progress towards attaining the three zeros shows. The zeros refer to the three transformative goals of ending preventable maternal deaths, ending unmet need for family planning and ending gender-based violence and harmful practices against women and girls.

Our achievements during the course of 2019 would not have been realised without the support of our donors. We express profound gratitude to the Governments of Canada, China, Iceland, Ireland and the  United Kingdom for their continued and unwavering commitment in supporting our mandate to prioritise the rights, needs and dignity of the most vulnerable women and girls in Sierra Leone. Such investments in humanity ensure that no one is left behind and are a testament to the fact that by working in partnership, we can all achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. We also value the engagement of our key implementing partners in accelerating the implementation of our sixth country programme. We look forward to further collaboration in the years ahead.
