The first half of 2016 was an era of transition for UNFPA Sierra Leone. There was a change in leadership with a new Country Representative assuming office, a shift from the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), as well as from Ebola surveillance to recovery.

To meet the demands of the new SDGs unveiled in 2015 and to best meet the national post-Ebola President’s Recovery Priorities, UNFPA Sierra Leone country office also began to realign its 2015-2019 country programme with the objectives of the SDGs.

In our quest to save women’s lives and to empower adolescents and youth the Country Office implemented a number of activities aimed at keeping issues that matter high on the agenda. We also worked to build the capacity of our partners and those on the ground to deliver quality services to the people who need them most.
