    • Description:
      The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) began working in Sierra Leone in the 1970’s, focusing on Lassa fever. In 2008, through the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), CDC began supporting Sierra Leone’s HIV response. A CDC country office was established in Sierra Leone in 2015, focusing on global health security and Ebola response. CDC works closely with Sierra Leone on strengthening laboratory, surveillance, emergency management, and workforce capacity to respond to disease outbreaks. As new health threats emerge (e.g., COVID-19) CDC and national partners are well-placed to leverage past successful initiatives and rapidly respond to new public health challenges.
