The government of Sierra Leone leads efforts to build stronger primary health care to improve quality of care for women, children and adolescents. The GFF supports the government priorities to reform health financing for improving resource efficiency and alignment, and channel more funding to the frontlines.

In Sierra Leone, family planning is a core priority intervention area in the investment case, focusing on an adolescent health package that includes teenage pregnancy prevention and ending early child marriages. Over the past few years, the GFF has supported a concerted effort to reduce stockout of family planning commodities by strengthening supply chains informed by Sierra Leone’s family planning plan.

In addition, the government has invested in significant training of service providers to offer long-term family planning methods as well as extensive community engagement and outreach to increase awareness of these methods.
