Sierra Leone

Sierra Leone’s entire estimated population of 6.5 million is vulnerable to malaria. More than 2 million outpatient visits due to malaria are reported annually, of which half are children under five years of age. A 2016 household survey demonstrated parasitemia ranges from 6 percent in Western Urban to 58 percent in Koinadugu district, among children 6–59 months of age. PMI distributes insecticide-treated nets and supports intermittent preventive treatment of pregnant women. PMI also procures diagnostic tests, antimalarials, and injectable artesunate for severe disease. Finally, PMI supports health worker training and mentoring, entomological surveillance, social and behavioral change strategies, and routine health information systems at the chiefdom level.
