What CDC Is Doing in Sierra Leone

The Center for Global Health and Prevention (CDC) began working in Sierra Leone in 2008 through the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). CDC supports laboratory and surveillance capacity building activities for HIV and other infectious diseases and supports training to build disease detection and response capacity.

In 2015, CDC established a country office in Sierra Leone to partner with the Government of Sierra Leone in developing and sustaining capacities to prevent, rapidly detect, and effectively respond to public health threats such as Ebola.
