The Government of Sierra Leone (GoSL) has instituted the Basic Package of Essential Health Services that aims to establish a high-impact, cost-effective primary healthcare service delivery mechanism and scale up health services including sexual and reproductive health services and child and maternal health services. As part of UNFPA’s support to the GoSL in the realisation of universal access to sexual and reproductive health services, the National Health Facility Assessment on Availability of Reproductive Health Commodities and Services is conducted on a yearly basis to provide up-to-date information on the availability of family planning supplies and life-saving maternal and RH medicines in the country.


The survey is designed to provide an overall picture of the availability and level of stock-outs, assess relevant aspects of health facility resources, clients’ perception about the quality of family planning services and their appraisal of costs incurred to access the services.
