Sierra Leone

STACC Sierra Leone (STACC/SL) has been providing health care for children since 1992.

The work now concentrates on infant feeding and has continued despite the ebola crisis.

The deworming of school-age children is now a government programme.

Over 470,000 deworming treatments were delivered to school children between 2004 and 2009. This programme has been adopted by the SL government into its national programme for the control of intestinal worm infections in school-age children. Between August 2014 and May 2015, over ten thousand children under 6 months and over eight thousand children between 6 and 24 months were given meals at the 16 feeding centres supported by STACC/SL.
