Due to decades of war and the Ebola epidemic, Sierra Leone’s health and education infrastructure are limited to urban areas. Inhabitants in rural areas do not without access to quality health and education infrastructure and as such do not receive healthcare services and are mostly illiterate. Healthcare providers are also without the requisite training to engage patients effectively and are unable to handle complex health situations leading to worsening of health issues in the communities. Also due to lack of education and societal stereotypes, rural communities are unable and receive in some cases healthcare services.
SEND Sierra Leone is committed to the construction and equipping of healthcare facilities to a standard capable of handling healthcare issues in the community. SEND Sierra Leone with its partners will train healthcare providers and educate the public on personal and community health to help them improve their health.
