UNFPA Sierra Leone - At a glance

UNFPA has been operating in Sierra Leone since 1971 and supports the Government’s efforts to revitalise the health system and promote sexual and reproductive health and rights. We provide the Government and other partners with comprehensive technical support to implement programmes, improve knowledge around sexual and reproductive health, gender equality, population issues, adolescents and youth.

In 2018, UNFPA launched efforts to achieve three transformative results, ambitions that promise to change the world for every man, woman and young person:

• Ending unmet need for family planning

• Ending preventable maternal deaths

• Ending gender-based violence and harmful practices against women and girls
