Sierra Leone’s entire population of 6.5 million people is vulnerable to malaria. A civil conflict ending in 2002 eroded vital healthcare infrastructure, and more recently, the Ebola epidemic negatively impacted people’s ability to access community health services, critical in the fight against malaria. Thanks to recent funding expansions, the U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) and Sierra Leone teamed up in 2017 to double-down on combatting the disease. Today, U.S. investments are focused on ensuring life-saving malaria interventions are available to all: from distributing insecticide-treated nets and supporting preventive treatment for pregnant women (who are at high-risk for malaria), to supporting health worker training, and distributing millions of effective malaria diagnostics and treatments.
