Despite unprecedented efforts and resources the Government of Sierra Leone, donors, and development partners have invested into the health sector over the last decade, the deadly Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) outbreak in 2014 further exacerbated the already weak health sector that is characterized by inadequate health workforce, poor infrastructure, high out-of-pocket expenditure, low health-seeking behaviours, weak information system especially at community level, high rates of child and maternal mortality – some of the highest in the world, and high level of mistrust among the population on the country’s health system. Latest WHO estimates from 2015 indicates that 1 in 17 mothers in Sierra Leone has a lifetime risk of death associated to childbirth, and 1 in 9 children die before reaching five. These and many more significant health challenges make Community Health Workers (CHWs) critical to increasing access to healthcare across the country and improving health indicators.
